Sue Hunter was born in Arkansas but has lived in Arizona and thinks of Arizona as home. The lovely desert colors, wide open spaces, and diverse landscapes of the southwest provide her with endless subject matter for her paintings. Color is an important aspect of Sue’s art which is reflected in her impressionistic style. “I try to put into my paintings the emotions I feel using color, light and shadow effects to create design.” She works in oil, acrylic and mixed media collage. Her subjects include landscapes, still lifes, figures and animals.
Sue graduated from Western International University with a BS in Business Administration. Sue studied art at Scottsdale Artists School, Scottsdale Community College, with local art instructors and has attended numerous workshops locally and in Europe.
Several years ago Sue did whimisical collages, she still does collages but recently started painting with acrylics and oil on wood prepared with gesso and muslin using a flat palette knife to paint.
She teaches classes in palette knife painting, acrylic, oil, pastel and mixed media collage at Shemer Art Center and in her Scottsdale studio. Sue also does painting demonstrations at various art groups and judges art shows as well as teaches workshops.
