Curious about how Susan operates? Something Creative was just featured in Faux Effects World international magazine! She recently completed a decorative finish in a wine cellar in North Dallas.

You can see the feature here, including pictures of the wine cellar and other projects she’s completed.

“Susan was a student in one of my Caromal Colours classes. The first thing I noticed about Susan was her diligent attention to details and how quickly she picked-up on the process. Susan was also very quick to add her own designs and ideas along with the Caromal Colour product line and this is something that makes a great artist and a delight to work with.
Thank you Susan for being such a great student.”
