Sue Allison began watercolour painting in 1978, developing her distinctive techniques which are easily recognizable if one knows her paintings. A well-known artist in Owen Sound, Ontario, her paintings portray mystical and magical wetlands and notable heritage buildings in the Grey Bruce Counties and surrounding areas. She has numerous paintings featured in private collections locally and internationally.
Sue graduated with honours from the Ontario College of Art and Design in 1971 and began working as an Exhibit Designer for the Ministry of Natural Resources in the ’70s. She started her career working closely with biologists and naturalists, which gave her a deep appreciation for the environment.
Sue teaches classes at the Georgian Bay Centre for the Arts on watercolours, drawing, basic sketching techniques, and, in the warmer months, plein air painting.
