Deborah Sussman

Los Angeles Design Pioneer

The death this week of Deborah Sussman, who passed away in Los Angeles at age 83, is notable in part because she was a woman able to carve out a vibrant and successful career in a field traditionally dominated by men. Sussman lived long enough to see her career receive critical attention, most recently as the subject of a retrospective exhibition, Deborah Sussman Loves LA, held last winter at Los Angeles’ Woodbury University Hollywood Gallery.
