Sue Shehan - Holiday PopUpShop

Sue Shehan is bringing her velvety and inspired pastel art to the gallery today for her pop up shop. One of our newer artists, Sue is so talented and enthusiastic about her medium. She’d love to help you choose the perfect piece.Come in and see what’s new by this fabulous artist!

After years of experimenting with other mediums, I began painting with pastels a few years ago.  What an amazing journey it has been- discovering the brilliant colors within creation. While I am inspired by all of nature, it has been the Colorado skies that have captivated me.  I am just now beginning to understand their complexities. My desire is to capture the viewer’s imagination, and to invite them to open the door into the world of pastels.

Sue was raised in the Kansas City area and attended the University of Kansas from 1976-1980 graduating in illustration.  She moved to Omaha, then to Denver in 1997. She has taken classes at the Art Students League of Denver, and is classes workshops through Burning Hearts Workshops of Denver  She is a member of the Pastel Society of Colorado
