She had the privilege of attending an arts-centred high school, where she studied drawing, printmaking and painting in depth, along with the french horn and a very little bit of math.

Sue graduated from York University’s Fine Arts program. Life took her to Northern Ontario, and then Calgary, during which time she did everything she could to instill a passion for the arts in her own four children, and all the other children she encountered.

She has spent many years as an art instructor in all mediums - teaching privately, in community groups, through the school boards and at Swintons Art in Calgary. Sue loves to teach, but loves to learn just as much.

Her art world has been full of incredible instruction and mentorship, including John Topelko, John Lovett, Brian Atyeo, Mike Svob, Michael O’Toole, David Langevin, Jane Davies, Brian Smith, Chantel Barber, Robert Burridge, Brent Lynch and many more. Her esteemed Swintons colleagues are friends and mentors and she learns from them continually.

Sue started teaching workshops for many artist groups in Alberta and BC, and a highlight this year was coaching with Doug Swinton in Alert Bay, BC.

Her work is in numerous private collections, as well as corporate collections in Canada and overseas including BMO Nesbitt Burns, Qualico Communities, Dean Engineering, Columbia College, and Badgery Rafferty Law.
