Sue Cowan is established artist passionate about painting the world around her. Born in Scotland she lives and works in Coquitlam, B.C., specializing in still life, portraiture, and landscapes. In addition to her work, she has also been an active art educator; teaching painting since 1993.
She summarizes her approach as:
"I love the beauty of such simple things as a few pieces of fruit adorned with silk or satin. I enjoy the control that still life offers. By arranging, rearranging and adjusting the fruit, fabric and light, I can work out my design just the way I want. Then I am free to play with colour, tone and brush strokes. I hope to offer the viewer a glimpse of the great beauty that surrounds us in the everyday.”
