This award winning artist’s work is largely inspired by surface designed fabric, words and the beauty of nature. She incorporates a wide variety of textiles, including vintage kimono silk, upholstery, hand-dyed fabric, hand painted canvas, and heat distressed Tyvek. She incorporates found objects, wire, paper, feathers, mica, as well as linens and papers preserved by her family.
The artist’s intention is to evoke a mood or elicit a memory and push the image to the abstract by transparent layering and intuitive composition and color. Sue uses both machine and hand stitching on hand dyed, painted or eco-dyed fabric to honor natural beauty. Fiber bowls, spirit dolls and greeting cards fill out her creative efforts.
Sue has exhibited work in Aspen and Evergreen Gallery in Estes Park, The Art Center of Estes Park, Lakewood Art Gallery, Foothills Art Center, R Gallery in Boulder, CO, the National Center for Atmospheric Research, Red Rocks Community College and in AAR River Gallery. She has been juried into Front Range Contemporary Quilter’s (www.artquilters.org) “Best of” Portfolio online exhibit for the last several years.
