"My artwork is an interpretation of my appreciation for the beauty found in landscapes.
I enjoy the simplicity that is created by nature- vast open spaces with amazing skies, majestic trees, or flowers of all colors, shapes and sizes.
Brilliant landscapes can also occur with some human assistance- farm fields, golf courses, and vineyards are but a few of the vistas that are a beautiful collaboration of man and nature.
Color, form, the medium of acrylic paint, and application techniques unite to create a representational realism in my work."
Sue Godwin was born and raised in Michigan, where her love of landscapes began.
She earned her Associates of Applied Science-Commercial Art degree in 1984 from Northwestern Michigan College.
Over the years, Sue transitioned from being a production artist of many years, to stay-at-home-mom, to primary education assistant and para-educator. 2013 marked the fulfillment of her desire to be a full-time landscape artist.
Currently Sue’s work is being shown at Strecker-Nelson Gallery in Manhattan, Kansas, and City Arts, in Wichita, Kansas. Recently she was the featured artist at Tessera Gallery, Wichita, Kansas. In June 2015, Sue had a painting selected for exhibition in the 61st Annual National Society of Painters in Casein and Acrylic show, held at the prestigious Salmagundi Club in New York City. In November, 2014, Sue was awarded Best of Show at Mead Street Gallery, Wichita, KS in their “Small Works” show.
Sue’s artwork has been purchased and commissioned for both private and corporate collections.
Living in Kansas the last fifteen years, Sue has a deep appreciation for the rural landscape around her, as well as varied landscapes experienced on her many travels in the U.S. and abroad.
