Colour In Your Life Sue Lederhose

Featured artist Sue Lederhose appeared on Colour In Your Life Season Seven (7). Read a little bit about the artist here and support our site by joining and watching the episode below.

Sue Lederhose was born in Murgon, Queensland, in the baby boom of the post-war era. She was raised on a mixed dairy farm, the middle child of six. While at high school she dabbled in oil paints and developed an enduring love of country landscapes.

Her first teaching position was to Bamaga, the extreme tip of Cape York. The strong art culture of the traditional Islander people was inspiring and many of these designs were used in her own fabric printing. In 1980 Sue was transferred to Mundubbera, where she married, worked in all the schools, ran a business and raised a family, becoming part of the community, church and local volunteer groups. Her interest in art was confined to teaching and promoting it in the schools.

Sue’s inspiration is anything in God’s creation. She loves to paint landscapes, flowers and portraiture, both animal and people. Pastels and various mixed media have been explored. Nothing is out of bounds or off limits! Some of the mediums she uses with watercolour include gouache, acrylic, charcoal, ink, pencils, oil and chalk pastels as well as acrylic textural mediums.

Sue has always entered as many art shows and exhibitions as possible and from the onset, she has won prizes, first with her graphite and charcoal work, later with her watercolours and her pastel work. She believes competitions are an excellent way to gauge the quality of your own work, expose artworks for sale and move on towards professionalism. Her personal goals are to continue to learn from other artists and develop her own style in graphite, charcoal, pastel and watercolour.
