Victoria Raymont, the Chair of the Illinois Chapter Board of Directors, will be in conversation with Susanne during the event.

Susanne’s mother, Harriet Keller Wise, was an artist. Susanne grew up with a 48 box of crayons and unlined paper always around the house. She always loved making art, and would later pursue it as a career. Susanne spent ten years working towards an undergraduate BFA degree, worked 40 years in the business sector, and attended Columbus College of Art & Design to earn her MFA after retiring. Her mother loved to critique and engage in art conversation with Susanne. Her mother was proud of Susanne’s path to earn her degrees.
Join us to learn about Susanne’s mother’s journey with dementia, and how art provided the perfect medium to share her story.
