SUZANNE MARIE DIETSCH is a multi-time first place and best-in-show recipient in the most competitive shell competitions in the country: Philadelphia, Sarasota and Sanibel. The artist is known for her creative, three-dimensional approach to this craft. One of her goals is to honor the nautical folk-art history of Sailors Valentines while creating a contemporary spin. With a deep appreciation for nature’s artistry these designs enjoy the intricate, mosaic expressions that can be created with seashells. A self taught artist each design is one tiny seashell at a time.
