Artist’s statement: TWIRL, “a word that summons fun and lightness and the speed at which my life has sped by”.
Sue Melzmuf began painting with oils in her forties after a family tragedy, giving her new hope and anticipation for the future. Sue has shown and sold most of her work in galleries and shops like Watercolors on Block Island, R.I. and Finer Line Gallery in Mystic, CT, whose owner says “Sue has a happy palette with vibrant colors and paints uplifting scenes”. She has also shown her work throughout Connecticut in places like Chester, Killingworth, New Britain and Waterbury.
Having had a lot of commission work, she is proud to say that her work hangs from Alaska to Georgia and all over New England.
About her work, Sue quotes: “My art is just my art, it wants to be traditional but has a definite abstract bend”.
