Suzanne Glémot is a dual master’s candidate at the University of Iowa, earning an MFA in Book Arts at the UI Center for the Book alongside an MA in Library and Information Science. Her creative practice centers heavily on the pursuit of fine craftsmanship, primarily in bookbinding, but also in hand lettering, letterpress printing, and hand paper cutting. It is through this emphasis on craftsmanship that she works to honor the narratives and texts that are at the center of her pieces.
Among other academic awards at the University of Iowa, Suzanne is the recipient of an Iowa Arts Fellowship and an Obermann Graduate Fellowship. Her work can be found in several collections including Special Collections at the University of Florida, the Library of Congress in Washington, DC, and the Central Libraries Special Collections at Baylor University in Texas. She is exhibited nationally in juried and in group shows.
Originally from France, Suzanne holds a BA in Studio Art with a minor in museum studies from Millsaps College in Jackson, Mississippi.
