Sue FletcherBiography: "Enjoying the view, considering all that makes it...from what it is, how elements relate, what's most important at the moment,,,this has been a life long passion. Interpreting the scene via sketching, painting, drawing...this makes everything come alive in a whole new way" is what Sue Fletcher, portrait artist and landscape painter, says is a part of her inspiration. "It makes the everyday more beautiful and in this way enriches my life. To share this anyway that I can with others through painting, teaching, or selling works of art adds an extra dimension of joy to living." Her works are essentially in a traditional style of realism, some with a more painterly style, others slightly impressionistic. The pastel and acrylic artist's interests were encouraged from an early age by supportive parents. Private instruction began at the elementary school age with tutoring by artist Harold Gore, through junior high years Sue studied with Lubbock artist Conny Martin. During high school years she did free lance art for retail stores. Advertising Art & Design was Sue Fletcher's major at Texas Tech University in Lubbock, TX. For over 20 years she earned her living as a commercial artist, with fine art and commissioned art always interspersed. In July of 1995 the artist moved to Bronte, TX, a rural community of less than 1,000 population. This was to be near the family of her only child and grand children. The opportunity to teach art at Coke County Juvenile Justice Center, a juvenile prison, facilitated the move. Early April of 2001, Sue returned to Lubbock, TX.
