Welcome to my studio. As  you can see, I LOVE  COLOR.  It makes me happy. My artistic background is in interior design, but I began painting on canvases a number of years ago when I realized it was much easier, and a lot more fun, to put my visions on canvas rather than on the walls. 

About Sue Barlow










My art is bold and lively. I usually paint with acrylic on canvas as I have found these mediums allow the fullest expression of the bright palette I enjoy.  The inspiration for my work comes from re-imaginings of common objects or new imaginings of designs I'd like to see in the world. 

I see beauty, emotion, energy, truth and love in shapes, colors, forms and design. I enjoy making the real world look even better. Though my paintings are filled with energy and color, the act of painting is a very meditative process for me. I utterly lose myself in the moment when a paintbrush is in my hand.

I have lived in Iowa, Washington DC, and New York City, and love them all, but Colorado is my home.  Sunshine.
