Sue Gill Rose is an accomplished artist and teacher. She has a BFA from Southern Methodist University and an MLA from Louisiana State University. She has also studied under renowned watercolor artist, Douglas Walton at Louisiana Tech University. Her use of color is similar to many folk artists, and of principal interest is her use of “patterning” where colors and shapes are intermingled and overlapped. This draws the viewer into the painting in order to see what is not immediately visible.
