Pin It Like This

Sue Key is a southern award winning artist whose work is represented in galleries, juried shows and corporate collections throughout the US.  Primarily self-taught, her thoughts and canvases are often filled with the wildlife and animals of sporting art, as well as coastal birds and landscapes. “I prefer to measure canvas in feet, not inches.  Most of my work blends focal points of tighter edges  within  the looseness of a painterly style.  Some of my favorites  are oversized and scratchy with the paint of a palette knife. I began to learn about composition, values and edges by driving miles of film through one old Nikon.   Photographic references continue to be a strong basis for my work, especially with wildlife portraits.  Combined with years of many other creative pursuits, somehow it all comes together in a painting.  I am currently all about a bird and a dog.”
