Sue began painting in watercolor for fun, learning the techniques of watercolor from a local artist after she spent a childhood knowing she had talent but never pursuing it. After raising four sons, she took a more serious approach to art and has been exhibiting her work professionally since 1999. Her artwork is part of many public and private art collections in the US and has been accepted into several juried shows in Texas and Louisiana, many times receiving awards. In 2011, she was the recipient of the Lake Charles Mayor’s Art Award for Artist of the Year. “I paint primarily with watercolor. I emphasize ‘with’ because it’s like a partnership, a give and take relationship. The watercolor seems to have a personality of its own….it goes where it wants to go on the paper! But as I have learned the properties of watercolor, I have learned to take control of the flow of the paint and also take advantage of the “surprises” it gives me on the paper. After painting with watercolor for over 20 years, I’m still getting those surprises. That’s the joy of the medium.” Zimmerman will also conduct a workshop on landscapes and composition as part of the ongoing GAEDA Education Series with a focus on design principles to compose any artwork. Students will paint a landscape together in watercolor as Zimmerman demonstrates how these principles can be applied. In addition, students are encouraged to bring reference photos or sketches that they plan to use for a future painting.
