Susan Burgess, also known as Scout, was born into a world of design. Her early memories traipsing around old barns and estate sales throughout the Midwest with her mother, Sarah Moss Burgess, set the course for her life in design. In addition to being an antiques dealer, Sarah was a gifted painter, her canvas’ included furniture, walls, floors, just about anywhere she could add her artistic flair was fair game. Scout’s appreciation for all things unique and beautiful can be traced back to her mother’s love of unusual objects and artistic sensibilities. 

While studying political science at UC Santa Barbara, Burgess' interest in politics blended with her obsession for art. Her work involved provocative installations and performances aimed at challenging the status quo. Her interest in pushing the envelope can be seen in her interior design and personal style.
