Sue Primeau

Sue refers to her work as abstract reality.  She is passionate about the world in which we live and the beauty that surrounds our everyday life.  It is this readily available subject where she finds her inspiration.  Being that she works primarily in watercolor, a medium she prefers not to control, she often begins by letting the shapes and colors occur spontaneously with little or no guidance.  Sue then studies the resulting image to determine how she will  develop the painting.  
Sue loves to teach watercolor and takes great joy in helping others realize their innate artistic and creative talents.  The questions and challenges of her students drive Sue to explore her own work from many different perspectives.

Sue's originals, giclées, and prints sell largely by word of mouth and she's been commissioned for a number of private works.  Sue exhibits at Artist-Alley Gallery in downtown Ocala as well as numerous juried and non-juried art shows.  She's been licensed on greeting cards and many of her works and painting lessons are published in four how-to books by internationally known, WI artist, Karlyn Holman on the subject of watercolor painting.  Sue has won a number of awards for her work and continues to strive for excellence in all her artistic endeavors. 

Aside from painting Sue loves to teach watercolor locally and abroad.  She finds great joy in helping others realize their innate artistic and creative talents.  The questions and challenges of her students drive Sue to explore her own work from many different perspectives.
