Down Home Girl Studio is owned and operated by Suzanne Sawyer.
I explore human relationship themes such as duality, identity, and anonymity through sculpture, handmade paper, books, drawings, letterpress printing, and printmaking. Particularly, I am interested in how we are known by others and ourselves, how we perceive one another, or even how we might wish to remain unknown or disguised. I often use plants and other forms found in nature as metaphors for relational concepts. I am deeply influenced by my experiences growing up in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia.
