"Animal Spirits" are inspired drawings in pen and ink. The drawings depict animal images, or totems, from around the world. Animal Totems represent a deep spirituality, and by beginning to understand animals' qualities and traits, we can learn from them.

Intricate pen & ink drawings on watercolor paper, meticulously hand -painted with acrylic paints. Look for the ladybug in every image: she represents good luck, happiness and prosperity!

Sue's Grandmother's Grandmother was Native American, and that tiny bit of heritage has had a large influence on her art. Indigenous art, and its relationship with the animal worlds has also influenced Sue's unique style. A deep love of all animals was instilled at a very young age and Sue has dedicated her life's work to them. She has a formal art training background, however she was truly inspired by her high school art teacher, d'Elaine Johnson, an internationally recognized artist.

She enjoys her family, meditation and the artistic process. Also, she is an avid gardener, and a black belt in TaekwonDo.
