Growing up in rural Ontario, presently living in the South Georgian Bay region and spending summers in Newfoundland, informs Sue’s artistic journey which is motivated by the abstracted interplay of natural elements and humanity’s primal connection to our environment. Working full-time from her studio in the beautiful village of Creemore, Ontario, Sue has produced work that has been exhibited in Canada and in Europe and is held in private collections across North America, Europe and Japan. Along with her 25 year studio practice, Sue has an extensive teaching career spanning 30 years and includes working with First Nations in Newfoundland/Labrador and Nova Scotia. She is also a long time member of the summer faculty at Sir Sanford Fleming College, Haliburton Campus. Most recently Sue has taken on the volunteer role of curator with the Wasaga Society for the Arts, assisting in starting the first ever public art gallery in Wasaga Beach, Ontario.
