Inspiration for my creations is a Hawai'i I have experienced, having lived here for over 40 years.
The sunsets (napo'o ana o ka'la), the ocean (moana), the land ('aina), the legends.

In Loving Memory
Susan Rogers-Aregger
June 28, 1951 - July 2, 2017

Susan Rogers-Aregger lived and worked in Hawai'i for over four decades. Susan was a prolific artist; she specialized in collage utilizing hand-made and hand-dyed papers, and ceramics created using varied firing techniques to achieve her vision. She was also an enthusiastic mentor and teacher, training artists here in Hawai'i and at the historic Chautauqua Institution in New York, and co-authoring the book “Paper Dyeing for Collage and Crafts.” 

Contributing to the Hawai'i artistic community was always a priority for Susan; she was a member of many visual arts groups on O'ahu, and served on the board of several organizations. She was well-known for her giving spirit, her friendly smile, and her enthusiastic laugh. Susan took part in many exhibits and events in the early years of The ARTS at Marks Garage in Chinatown, Honolulu, and the art gallery space is now named in her honor. 

Prints of Susan's collage work and copies of her co-authored book, "Paper Dyeing for Collage and Crafts," are available through The ARTS at Marks Garage online store or at the gallery, located at 1159 Nu'uanu Ave., Honolulu, Hawai'i.

Paper Dyeing for Collage and Crafts
A book by Gloria Foss and Susan Rogers-Aregger

Who ever heard of dyeing papers in a pan of colored water that can be used in countless collage and crafts projects and that won’t fade? We hadn’t, nor had we read of any such attempt in countless art books. The absolutely efficient way to color a variety and quantity of papers quickly is to dip them into a dye bath. That is the basic dyeing technique that the late Les d’Alexandre taught in Hawaii thirty years ago and that we will share with you in this new book. Please click HERE.
