Virtual Studio Tour
The coronavirus pandemic has made us all have to pivot and adapt so many aspects of our lives. For us, this meant coming up with a creative solution to the lack of an in-person studio tour in 2020. We’re excited about what we’ve been able to produce in order to welcome you into our studios and gain insight into our creative process, where we work, and what it is about Herbser & the South Shore that so inspires us. We hope you’ll enjoy these videos and come away with a better understanding of each of us and our work.
Enjoy a virtual tour of Susan’s studio, including a special tour of her gardens, the source of much of her inspiration.
