hi, I'm Sue

SHOP MY ART

My studio is the old taproom in an 1830s brick house in rural Vermont.

But my favorite studio is under the sky where I get started on most of my paintings. My brother gave me an old plein air easel and it accompanies me around the back roads and hillsides near my home. I spend the winter months finishing my summer work, and creating dreamscapes that are composites of the places I’ve been fortunate to go. I work in acrylics, watercolors, ink and textiles.

I look forward to a day when the studio can be a social place again. If you are in Vermont and want to come view work in my studio gallery, give a call or email. We can plan for Covid safety ahead of your visit so we all feel comfortable. 

Look for studio workshops in the future.

A Sky Like Spring

This morning there was a shift in the light in the sky. The weekend was bitterly cold with that pink or pale icy blue tinge in the ether. Today there was a warm hint of yellow in the sky blue and the hills glowed differently. The 28 degree F air felt balmy on my...
