|Biography from Portland Classic Gallery:|
|Sue Foell has a passion for oil painting, which is fueled by the
excitement she feels while trying to capture the life of her subject on
canvas. Her convincing sense of light and dark, confidant
brushstrokes, strong drawing skills, and use of rich color give a
special strength to her paintings. |
Foell studied for four years with portrait artist, William J. Kalwick
Jr., while living in Houston, TX, which left her with a lasting love
for portrait and figurative painting. She also studied with Roger
Dale Brown and now ranks plein-air painting as one of the most
enjoyable experiences there is for a painter.
Her home is near Memphis, TN, where she lives with her husband and
ten-year old daughter, who is a frequent model for her paintings.
The thrill and fascination she finds in painting the beauty all around
us is something she says will never grow old.
In the past
several years, Sue has received numerous awards at various local and
national shows. She recently had paintings accepted into the
Salon International 2008 Juried Exhibition, Salon International 2007
Juried Exhibition where she received a Jury's Top 50 award, Oil
Painters of America's 2007 National Juried Exhibition, and Oil Painters
of America's 2007 Eastern Regional Exhibition.
Sue is an Associate Member of the Oil Painters of America and an active member of the Memphis Germantown Art League.
