Sue ChurchGrant was born in Ontario, Canada. Until 2010, she was a practicing pediatrician, using every spare moment to draw, paint or sew.
Although primarily self-taught, Sue has learned from fabulous watercolor workshops led by artists including Susan Harrison Tustain, Ted Nuttall, Joseph Fettingis, Charles Reid and local classes taught by Motsie Brooks. She has been a member of Hollis Chatellain's textile Master Class. Recently, Sue has attended oil painting workshops led by Dreama Tolle Perry, Qiang Huang, Carolyn Anderson and Karin Jurik.
Sue has a degenerative eye disease so observing and expressing the colors of her world is important in all of her work. In addition, she feels "connected" to children and enjoys capturing them unposed: thoughtful, fearful, mischievous or just enjoying life.
Sue has had her work juried into and awarded in several national painting shows including the Northwest Watercolor Society, Southern Watercolor Society, Georgia Watercolor Society, Kansas Watercolor Society, Watercolor Society of North Carolina, Emerald Art Center, Cape Fear Art Gallery , and Baptist Medical Center, Wake Forest University. She has work at Low Country markets in Beaufort and Hilton Head S. C. Regionally she exhibited at Nash Arts April 2016 and annually she exhibits at Holiday Exhibitions at Blount Bridgers in Tarboro and Wilson Art Center in Wilson NC. Sue's work can also be found in many private and corporate collections. Sue is a member of NWWS, Southern WS, NWS, Georgia WS, TWS, AWS, WPSE and a signature member of WSNC.
