Springwood ART SHOW is a wonderful community art event and part of the tradition that helped create the Blue Mountains as the “city of the arts“.

Also, a highlight of this year is encouraging young and emerging artists, with the theme of “Make Your Mark” to celebrate Springwood High School’s 50th anniversary this year. Over $4,000 in prizes available across a range of mediums and ages.

Sue has been a professional artist for over 30 years and works with pastels. She lives in the Blue Mountains where her subjects are in abundance. Art has always been a passion and a natural talent as she has had no formal tutoring. Sue delights in celebrating the beauty of creation and her photo realistic artworks invite the viewer to come close and check that it is indeed a painting and not a photograph. Her love for animals is evident in Sue’s attention to the finely detailed drawing of feathers and fur.
Sue has won many art awards with at least half being the Viewers choice award, which tells her what the public like. Sue’s work hangs both locally and abroad including in the Council chambers of Sanda Japan as a gift to the Mayor from the Blue Mountains City Council.
