Suzi Banks Baum is a book artist and writer. She lives in Great Barrington, MA under a big oak tree. She teaches book making and writing all over the world and likes to make stuff from not fancy materials. Suzi and her niece Ella Rose Mujinga Banks make art together when they meet up for vacation. Ella lives in Milwaukee, Wisconsin and is 9 years old.
Suzi Banks Baum uses writing, hand bound books, photographs and mixed media collage to say what she means. She believes daily creative practice is a super food.
Suzi is editor and publisher of An Anthology of Babes: 36 Women Give Motherhood a Voice and is a featured contributor to the Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts blog for the Pentaculum residency. Among her publications, Suzi’s fiction appears in the Walloon Writers Review and The Collection: Flash Fiction for Flash Memory.
Deeply curious about thresholds crossed into daily creative practice, she writes personal
narrative with an ear for poetry in the ordinary. Her ongoing writing workshop at the Ramsdell Public Library in Housatonic, MA has nurtured over 60 writers. She teaches mixed media and writing for the International Women’s Writing Guild. Suzi travels yearly to work with women artists in Gyumri, Armenia for New Illuminations, a book arts residency.
