Knowledge extraordinary

Along with her formal education, Susan credits much of her talent to an intensive year of apprenticeship under Suzanne Caygill at the Academy of Color. Originator of the "Four Seasons" color concept, Ms. Caygill was internationally recognized as a pioneer in color research and for many years was an image designer for MGM Studios in Hollywood. She founded the Academy of Color in San Francisco and passed on her extensive knowledge to only eight carefully chosen students. Susan Carson was honored to be among the chosen few.

While living abroad, Susan immersed herself in European and Latin American cultures, absorbing a rich mosaic of fashion, architecture, interiors, fabric, and furnishings. Susan's international experiences and world travel enhance her ability to visualize each of her clients in a lifestyle harmonious with his or her particular heritage.
