Join Standard Goods Thursday October 13th for Capitol Hill Art Walk. In an exhibit entitled "Into The Wild." featuring numerous Seattle based artists.

Also stay tuned for more artist interviews all week long.
Sharon Susie is an aspiring children's book writer, illustrator, and dog owner. Sharon compensates for her lack of formal art training by using big words to describe her pieces. When she's not on her couch doing nothing but nothing at all, Sharon can be spotted at a café with her literary love, Mark Twain.
