The Art of Suzanne lappan, featuring Art Dolls, Art Quilts and more. Dabbling in fabric and stichery, Suzanne has always made things by hand. With a background in Textile Design, She has always loved pattern, color and texture. She started making Art Quilts in 1997 during college and moved into Art Dolls in 2002. This allowed her to blend her love of working with the textile medium and her love of painting. Her dolls have been published in various issues of Art Doll Quarterly.
