She worked as a regional consultant for the Idaho Commission on the Arts for three years, and received the Governor’s Award in Arts Education in 2002.
She has published illustrations in local magazine articles since 1971. In 2010, she published a series of watercolors for a children’s book.

Besides teaching art, she devotes her time to non-profit groups in Teton Valley, teaching and donating her art. As a founding member of the Teton Arts Council, she is passionate about the importance of the arts in the lives of everyone.
“I love to express the spirit of the environment with my paintings,” she says.
When she is not teaching, Sue enjoys painting outdoors “plein aire,” hiking, cycling, gardening, and horses.
