Susie Klein received her B.F.A. from Rhode Island School of Design and her M.F.A. from New York University. Her animated films have taken part in screenings, group shows, festivals, and live performances across the United States and abroad.

She has had the good fortune of working with many notable animators, filmmakers, musicians, theater, and film groups. Among other projects, she co-conceived, co-animated, and shot live-action for Poi Dog Pondering's music video "Fruitless", was an assistant animator on John Canemaker's Academy Award winning documentary, "You Don't Have to Die", and taught animation to children at the Rhinelander Children's Center in New York City. Through her association with FilmCrash, her films were commissioned for John Moran's opera, "The Manson Family" performed at Lincoln Center's Serious Fun! Festival and Hugh Esten's "Jungle Movie", performed at One Dream Theater in Tribeca. In collaboration with the band Zoar, she created the animated film "The Steep and Thorny Way", an experimental film "Nocturne", and illustrations for two musical releases.

She has since returned to encapsulating her animated stories in the still and single frame, creating drawings steeped in mythological and archetypal imagery. In her spare time, she indulges her passion for nature by way of herb and water gardens and volunteering with wolves.
