CCAD MFA candidate Susanne Dotson in Columbus Dispatch

CCAD 2019 MFA Candidate Susanne Dotson

Susanne Dotson (MFA, 2019) creates saturated and graphic images that meld fashion and farming—appropriate for the stylish native of LaGrange, a small town in northeast Ohio. 

The Columbus Dispatch recently featured Dotson, whose unconventional path to a master's degree took her more than 40 years. She earned a BFA in Fine Arts from the University of Akron in 1974 and worked in retail, commercial interior design, and other creative endeavors, and maintained a painting practice in her spare time. But after retirement, she moved to Columbus to attend CCAD, and will graduate this May at age 75.
