Susan Scott    Susan grew up in Western Canada and still flies to Calgary once a year to spend time on her father's ranch near Banff. After completing a degree in history and a MBA, she held positions in publishing, politics and university affairs. Susan's interest in 20th-century ceramics developed in the 1980s when she frequently visited her grandmother in England. Always enterprising, Susan wrote her first magazine article to pay for the trip she made to attend Susie Cooper's 90th birthday celebration in London in 1992. Since then she has become a full-time writer and contributor to the New England Antiques Journal, House Beautiful, The Antique Trader, Collector Eye, Today's Collector and The Upper Canadian.
    For the last four years Susan has written the "hot" collectible column for Canadian House & Home as well as a series of articles about antiquing across Canada. She is the only Canadian on the Board of Advisors of Warman's Americana & Collectibles. Susan co-authored The Charlton Standard Catalogue of Chintz that was so popular that it went into a second edition within a year. Susan gave a talk, "Susie Cooper in North America" for the Susie Cooper Collectors' Group in Stoke-on-Trent in 1994 and has been the keynote speaker at the last two Chintz Conventions in California. Every November she flies to London for Christie's Clarice Cliff auction where she seldom buys anything. Susan and a group of friends then spent the weekend sleuthing along Portobello Road and the other London markets before heading north to Stoke where she devotes a week in the library doing research.
Susan has finished the third edition of The Charlton Standard Catalgue of Chintz. It was released in August of 1999 in England. Go to the ChintzNet order form to order an autographed copy of Susan's chintz book.
