My name is Sue and I am a full-time studio artist living in New Mexico. I work in different mediums, fiber and paint. I enjoy both immensely…
I love the spontaneity of painting and I love the challenge of textiles.
My newest work combines fiber – industrial felt, waxed linen, zippers – on metal armatures created by my husband. Each has a vessel shape in different forms…pods, wasp nests or boats. In a year long preparation for an invitational exhibit in Santa Fe, I experimented with these vessels and found them to be original and delightfully technically challenging. I will now focus on developing this series.
I traveled for many years selling my work at national art fairs. When I moved to New Mexico, I opened a gallery to sell my work. After four years in business, I missed being in my studio full-time and returned to experiment and develop a new body of work.
My work is available for purchase in my new studio in Santa Fe and at different exhibits nationally, or you may contact me with questions.
