A self-taught artist, Sue started working in wood thirty years ago, expanding into other areas of the arts in the years since. A writer of both fiction and non-fiction, she also keeps alive the forgotten craft of fingerweaving.
Her work in wood ranges from abstract sculpture to live-edged boxes to hand-carved spoons. She is currently involved in the world of watercolor, blurring the line between realism and abstract in her own unique style.
Sue’s work has received a number of awards and been involved in numerous juried and invitational shows and exhibits. She was one of five artists invited to participate in a special wood exhibit at the Neville Museum in Green Bay, Wisconsin, and several of her sculptures were included in a special exhibit at the Michigan Governor's suites.
I remember the fun of being involved in designing class floats, dance routines,
posters. That’s about as close as I got to art in my youth. There was no
encouragement in the arts as such, and little exposure to anything beyond our
small town. But at a small school you could pretty much be involved in any
activity you wanted so in many ways the opportunities were broader than in a
larger city. And usually youth were expected and allowed to handle their own
activities which gave us freedom to create .

We live and work in our home, studio, and shop in the northwoods of
Michigan's Upper Peninsula. Our art, our work, our lives, and our play
interweave and blend to such a degree that it is often hard to tell where one
ends and the other begins, which is how we like it to be.
