Description

Using heavy body acrylic or oil paints, Sue will demonstrate and assist students with the techniques of painting with palette knives.

This technique lends itself to a “looser” more expressive style of painting, where the focus is on the “essence” of the subject, not the literal representation.

Canadian Artist: Sue A. Miller

Born in 1965, Sue A. Miller grew up in rural Ontario on the shores of Lake Couchiching. Miller uses contemplative practice, texture and the interplay of colour to express a primal connection to the natural world. Currently, living on Georgian Bay as well as her summer home in Newfoundland has had a major influence on Sue’s subject matter and motives. She immerses herself in these landscapes before she paints. Sue’s desire to connect an audience to the canvas results in work that conveys the essence and feeling of the place rather than explicit images or symbols.

Miller studied Fine Art at Georgian College in Barrie, Ontario graduating in 1986. Since then she has continuously practiced from her studio in Creemore, Ontario and has taken part in numerous solo and group exhibitions in Ontario, Newfoundland and Europe. Her work is represented in galleries in Ontario and Newfoundland and is held in private collections across North America, Europe and Japan. Miller’s teaching career has included work with Haliburton School of the Arts, First Nations in Labrador & Nova Scotia, Autism Ontario and facilitating art retreats and workshops in Newfoundland. Sue is the owner/director of The Bay School of Art, providing fine art classes in the Georgian Triangle area for adults, teens & children.
