Susan Bradish

​I was born and raised in a military family and was exposed to lots of travel and to many different cultures from early childhood. My professional training and career experiences are deeply rooted in the biological sciences. In 2006, I left my former career in veterinary medicine to explore my creative calling, and have since finished a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Eastern Kentucky University, focusing on metals, jewelry and printmaking. I have a particular interest in book arts and I have recently developed workshops teaching others to make various types of books. I live with my husband, Jim, in the heart of the Bluegrass, Central Kentucky, which we lovingly refer to as “The Shire”. I am a member of the Creative Art League of Jessamine County and the Lexington Fiber Guild, both in Central KY. National organizations I belong to are the American Craft Council and Society of North American Goldsmiths. My work has appeared in the Giles Gallery and the Noel Studio for Academic Creativity at EKU, and at the Polvino Family Art Center in Nicholasville, KY. In Lexington, KY, my work has appeared in the Loudon House, John G. Irvin Gallery at Central Bank and Christ Church Cathedral.
