Sue Briesch- Living out loud



Art has been a constant thread that has connected a variety of experiences I have enjoyed in my life. Beginning my formal art studies at the Chicago Academy of Fine Art, I continued to develop as an artist through private studies and seminars across the country. 

 

I have taught adult painting and enjoyed seeing students develop skills and realize their own potential. As an independent artist, I painted  murals for corporations and private homes. I designed and manufactured my own line of pins and spiritual based art. I owned and managed a shop with a spiritual theme and a fine art gallery that featured 33 Chicago and suburban area artists. 


I then discovered gourds as a “fine art”, and for  over 15 years I was intrigued with vessels, color and weaving. 


Then I discovered felting as an art form. I was so curious about how these beautiful objects were made. I began taking classes and just could not get enough information!!!  I loved the medium. Again, my path seems to be creating vessels again, but this time in the form of a  purse. 


I am enthralled with Art. On of my favorite quotes is by Emile Zola: ”If you ask me what I came to do in this world, I, an artists, will answer you, I am here to live out loud” 


I hope you enjoy my work.
