About Me


Howdy! My name is Susan Lynch, also known as “Sue”. Art is my passion. People often ask me how long I’ve been doing this and I can honestly say “Since I was first able to hold a crayon.” My first memory of painting is when I was in kindergarten. Starting in the 6th grade through high school I attended Saturday morning classes at Rhode Island School of Design in Providence, all on scholarships I received through school art shows. I later attended classes at Cameron University in Lawton, OK, again, mostly on scholarship, where I completed approximately three years working towards a BA degree. At the time I was a military wife and was required to move before I could finish. However, I made the best of my time in Lawton with many accomplishments.

During my time in Lawton , I worked several art commissions including technical illustration, courtroom illustration, miscellaneous newspaper ads and several sports magazine covers. I was also commissioned to do several animal and pet portraits and competed and placed in several art shows.

I have experience in the following mediums: graphite pencil, colored pencil, charcoal, pen & ink, water color, oil, acrylics, pastels, mixed media and printmaking (silk screen, lithograph and etching).

Colorado became my permanent home in 1990. Since then, I have done numerous animal and pet portraits in pencil and prisma color (waxy colored pencil), mostly commissioned pieces. My current medium is water color. But I still enjoy working with pencil and colored pencil.

Although enjoying the freedom of doing subject matter of my own choosing, I am still doing commissioned pieces for clients. So, please feel free to contact me: suesfriends@yahoo.com or 303-503-3895 if you are interested in a personal commission.
