Suzanne Glémot is a book artist and master’s candidate at the University of Iowa Center for the Book earning an MFA in the Book Arts. Her studio practice centers the pursuit of fine craftsmanship, primarily in bookbinding and in letterpress printing, as well as in decorative techniques such as hand paper cutting and natural dyeing. It is through this emphasis on craftsmanship that she works to honor the narratives and texts that are at the core of her pieces. Since 2017, she produces hand printed book objects and broadsides under the imprint Stoat and Heather Press.
Through her studies at the University of Iowa, she is additionally trained in book conservation and preservation practices. In 2019, she earned her graduate degree in Library and Information Science from the University of Iowa School of Library and Information Science.
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 exhibits her work 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.
