Sue Bennett is a classically trained artist who paints to express beauty. "My intent is to capture the heart of the subject and I get completely caught up in it." Her paintings have been included in over 45 exhibits around the nation. She works most frequently in transparent watercolor, however she also enjoys opaque watermedia and pastel.
The subject matter that I am interested in is representational. I strive to be thorough and accurate and yet catch what is fleeting and lively. The work I'm most proud of shows life as I see it: fatally flawed, but amazingly beautiful.
My artwork is in private and corporate collections world-wide. I am an award-winning artist, past gallery-owner, and my art has been in many exhibitions. I work in various mediums, subjects and types of art and am a member of several art societies, and past member of many more. Please see Jillian's listing in the Teaching Artists directory.
Growing up in Hawaii, I absorbed the tastes and cultures of the Islands. My father, a photographer, also blessed me with an artistic eye for exotic colors and shapes. In 1991 I came to Oregon; my unique handsewn cotton Japanese and Hawaiian print Happi Coats and Kimonos, hand-painted silk scarves and wall hangings can be found at select art venues throughout the state. I'm often commissioned to create custom pieces to wear or to decorate the home or office.

I developed a passion for expressing myself through watercolor in the early eighties. I am driven to be the best that I can, and know that this venture will take me the rest of my life. If I can show others how to see and feel an emotional attachment to the world around them, I will have become successful with my art. I believe anyone can do what I do…the important thing is the desire. Expressing myself with my art is something that is at the very core of who I am.
I love the fine art side of Photography, using my camera as a painter does a brush, and my photographs reflect the interpretation I chose for that scene at that moment. My education includes three years of college training in Fine Art Photography and over 25 years of experience. My art has been published in a book for fishermen titled ""Native Trout of North America."
Landscapes and nature are what I began with, and truly love. The beauty of Southern Oregon combined with my love to travel provides never ending photo opportunities. The creative side of photography has moved me into many new directions. Working artistically with an image can transform a photo into an amazing work of art. I offer my work in Giclée prints and custom framed prints, perfect for home, office or a special gift. Visit my website to view my portfolio, and come back often as I regularly add new images.

Painting is my way of expressing an emotion or moment in time to share with others. I paint a variety of subjects in many mediums and find in each a joyful challenge; I'm currently experimenting with abstract expressionism. I show my work at the Portland Art Museum, in numerous galleries throughout Southern Oregon, and at the Saatchi Gallery in London. My father was an artist and my great, great grandfather was George Inness, an artist of the Hudson River School.
My work is mainly landscapes, seascapes & nature photographs taken in S. Oregon and along the Oregon Coast, joined by travel, architectural, floral and abstract photos. During 30 years as a Cardio-thoracic Surgical Physician Asst. I've helped patients and family through some of the most stressful days of their lives. This makes creating images with a sense of beauty and peace which can relieve the stresses of life one of my greatest joys.
