Create a mixed media landscape using a variety of materials. Bring your creative imagination, a sketchbook and your favorite drawing tools (if desired), and landscape ideas/images to make a unique landscape painting.  All levels are welcome and materials are provided, so whatever else you bring to use is optional. I will get you started, guide you, and your intuition does the rest!

   

Sue Tyler was born in Idaho, and has called Teton Valley Idaho home for 35 years. She began drawing and painting at a young age, inspired by local landscapes, animals, and icons of the past in Western culture. Sue taught art to all ages for almost 30 years, until she retired to paint full time. Sue’s painting can be seen in galleries and plein air events throughout the West.  See more of her work here.

Her recent awards include:

  • Escalante Canyons Art Festival 2019 – honorable mention
  • Driggs Plein Air Festival 2019 , 2nd Quick Draw,  National Juried Show – 2nd place
  • Arts Idaho Biennial, top 50, 2004, 2007 2008, 2012, 2019 – honorable mention

Sue paints plein air landscapes in acrylic and watercolor. In the studio, her mixed media pieces allow a freer expression of a subject. “Mixed media allows an intuitive, versus literal experience, she says. And I can focus on design essentials. Hopefully, each piece is a conversation with the viewer.”
