Sue Zimmermann has been painting in her chosen medium, watercolor, for 30 years. Born and raised in Lake Charles, LA and a graduate of McNeese State University, she primarily is self- taught in watercolor.
Knowing since childhood that she had a gift in art, Sue did not fully embrace it until mid-life. As a young adult, Sue began painting in watercolor for fun, learning the techniques of watercolor from local artist, Jerry Wright. It was only in the past 15 years, though, that she took a more serious approach to art and began an intense self-study of design principles and their application to her artwork. She has built her skill level to successfully be included in many juried exhibitions in Louisiana and Texas. In 2011 she was selected for the Lake Charles Mayor’s award for Artist of the Year.
Active in several art associations in the area, Sue also teaches an adult class in watercolor. Her artwork can be seen at www.suezimmermann.com.
As an artist I am constantly looking for glimpses of beauty or noticing pleasing designs of shapes, color and texture in my surroundings. When I see it I have a deep feeling of joy that I want to share with others through my artwork. My hope is to draw the viewer into my painting and remind them of the wonders around them and evoke a sense of peace, good feelings…. refreshment.
