During that period of time, Suzy also created vinyl sculptures used in a set design for Betty and Fritz for 'Dances We Dance' a Modern Dance Co. Performances were held at various Museums in Hawaii. The vinyl sculptures are part of the permanent collection of this dance company.
The digital world captured her attention so much that in 2000 after moving from Hawaii to Los Angeles; she turned both her own and her notable father, Saul Mandel’s illustrations into short animations, game designs, and animated greeting cards.

Back to her roots of traditional art, Suzy is creating an entire new collection of watercolor illustrations inspired by her recent trip to France, Germany and Alaska which some of them will become wine labels for her homemade award winning wines.
