She received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Texas Tech University in 1983, a Master of Arts degree from University of Houston in 1987 and a Master of Fine Arts degree from University of Texas at San Antonio in 1999. Budge currently lives in Houston where she continues her
    studio practice and teaches ceramics at the Art League of Houston and the Museum of Fine Arts Glassell School.Susan’s work is inspired by mythology, illusions, and psychology. Most of her work is abstract as she tends to be more spontaneous and creates from her subconscious mind as her hands do the work! Susan’s latest work is a visual journey of her struggles and joy amid the Covid-19 pandemic.
