Susan Li O’Connor
Susan Li O’Connor was born in Taipei, Taiwan. Her work deals with the accumulation of everyday objects and the transformation of them into sculptural forms and installations.

She holds a BFA degree from the Columbus College of Art and Design and an MFA degree from the Ohio State University. She is a 2011 GCAC Artist in the Community Supply Grant recipient.
