Sue was raised in a family of artists and art educators in the foothills west of Denver. As a young child, she grew up in her father’s high school art classroom. Sue graduated from Colorado State University, Ft. Collins, Colorado with a B.A. in Art History and a minor in English. She received her K-12 Art Education Certification from the University of Northern Colorado, Greeley. Able to instruct in a wide variety of mediums and styles, she has instructed K-12 Art in several public schools along the front range of Colorado.
Upon moving to Texas, she worked as the Senior Marketing Manager at the Dallas Museum of Art. While at the museum, Sue was surrounded by an encyclopedic collection and met some of the country’s most influential living artists and art educators. Sue’s passion for art education and the creative process is what brought her back into the studio and the art classroom. Since leaving the DMA, Sue has developed her own more contemporary style of art and her personal work reflect her many diverse life experiences.
Before coming to the Art House Sue instructed students from Pre-K to adult while acting as the Director of Art Education at a small art school in Frisco, TX.
