“Artists of the world, may your many different paths
all lead to that infinite Ocean of beauty
where wonder becomes awe,
exhilaration, unspeakable joy.”
Pope John Paul II
Sue’s colorful paintings in deep jewel tones of Jesus, Mary and the Saints are reminiscent of early icons but she has a style all her own. I think my favorite pictures are the graceful, flowing lines of her pencil sketches.
Her art making is intuitive, her creativity flows from her inner self, her spirit. The early influences from her years of studying art are still there but the style has taken on a life of its own.

I purchased one of your pendants (sold at St Gianna’s in Lincoln) and would like to purchase another. Do you have an image of the Blessed Virgin available?

Sorry, but I just wrote a post about Sue’s art- I don’t have any connections to her.
