American Pharoah, July 2015

"In a Heartbeat" Dec2016



Sue came to drawing late in life, but things happened quickly once  she started. Her art has been published in magazines and an instructional art book, juried into national art shows, and won awards  in international art competitions. Her artwork grows out of and reflects her passion for horses, and her appreciation of their strength and beauty as living, breathing art. She and her husband live in a rural area with their two horses and dogs, who serve as both inspiration and subject models. Her work can be seen at the Solaris Gallery in Versailles, KY, and at the Spa Fine Art Gallery in Saratoga Springs.
