Suzanne Anderson - Yikes Studio Enamels
CALL: (207) 356-0460
I originally came to Maine to attend Maine College of Art where I majored in painting. I fell instantly in love with Portland and eventually the entire state and never left. While studying painting I also took every class in metals and jewelry. After graduating I found myself with no tools but a big desire to continue to make jewelry so I created using what materials I had (paper, clay, fiber, paint). Over the years I proceeded to accumulate tools and materials and eventually a studio. I have created jewelry in many forms and color has always been an important part of the process. Vitreous (hot glass) enameling is for me the perfect combination of metalsmithing and color.
My love of the Maine landscape and especially the tiny worlds of lichen and fungus growing amongst the giant glacial granite boulders has been a huge inspiration to the forms and colors that percolate through my work.
