About Sue Hourigan

Sue lives in the border town of Corowa on the Murray River in New South Wales, Australia.

Sue always enjoyed drawing as a child and took up painting in her adult years.  She hasn’t looked back.

 

Sue is a passionate and dedicated artist focused on creating traditional realistic artworks in the most exciting and vibrant way by engaging the viewer through application of fine art principles and techniques in her own unique style. 

 

Sue has been painting for over 35 years and has reached a level with her art where she is capable of tackling any subject.   She works in a number of art mediums including oil, acrylic, pastel, watercolour, graphite and pencil.

 

Sue followed a technical career path, graduating as an engineer and working in technical roles for all of her working life.  She believes that this has held her in good stead with respect to her ability to achieve technical accuracy in her artworks.  Sue decided about 10 years ago to make more time for her real passion, and now works part time, allowing her the luxury of spending more time at the easel!

 

Sue has become well known as an accomplished artist in north east Victoria.  She is a member of the Bright Art Gallery, and has exhibited and sold her works at various north east Victorian art shows over the years, winning numerous prizes and highly commended awards along the way.  Most recently Sue won Best Oil at Bright Autumn Art Show in 2023  and  Best Pastel in 2021.   Sue exhibited as a resident artist at Art Gallery on Ovens, Wangaratta in 2022 and 2023.   Her works can also be viewed at Carlisle Art in Benalla, and the Olive Shop in Milawa. Many of her paintings are now sold as commissioned works.
