Sue Sutherland is an oil painter and printmaker. Her subjects vary but are almost always inspired by the natural beauty that surrounds her; quiet country roads, big skies, snowcapped peaks and the twists and turns of the mighty Columbia River.
She begins her process on location, photographing, sketching and painting. Some of these studies are finished paintings. Others make their way back to the studio, where the visual information is transformed into larger works.
"It's all about the light, it can transform an object in seconds."
With bold use of color and expressive brushstrokes, Sue captures the essence of a place and the elusive qualities of light.
Sutherland lives in the heart of the Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area. The gorge is a special place and a stunning backdrop for an inspiring and vibrant art community.
