Sue Zylak began drawing and painting at a very young age. She soon discovered pastels and was intrigued with portraiture. However, Sue's interest in oil painting was again sparked in 1998. She studied with Master Artist Oscar Durand for two years. Always striving to improve, Sue finds it beneficial to learn from others. She later began training with another Master Artist, Numael Pulido.
Sue has always found encouragement and support from her parents, her husband, and others to continue her God-given talent. She and her husband of 37 years, Rick, now reside in North Carolina, where she works out of her Troutman studio.
Sue taught pastel and oil classes in NH and now teaches at the Andre-Christine Gallery Studio in NC. She is a member of the Mooresville Artist Guild in NC. Sue has received numerous awards throughout the years. She was published in the International Artist Magazine, as well as the International Pastel Artist Magazine. Kennedy Publishing has included her work in "Best of America Oil Artists". Sue's work has also been published by SomersetHouse Publishing and Art Collector Maine publication/website.
"If my artwork has brought joy to someone; perhaps bringing back a childhood memory or taking them back to a special time or place in their lives, then I feel it has blessed them in some way and my prayer has been answered."
