Featured Artist: Sue Anne Foster


Sue Anne Foster’s path has led her on a winding journey and it is reflected in her art and in her demeanor. I ask her about her first memorable encounter with art. Sue Anne tells me it was with her mother who had them make raffia owls out of packing materials. From the very start, she learned to re-purpose materials for creating art. Now her artwork recycles found objects and other materials into sculpture. Sue Anne’s father worked with her a lot with tools. In her adult life, she went on, to take classes, along with her friend, artist Anne Bradley, in casting and welding metal. Sue Anne would go on to create many of her sculptures in metal, such as “OM”.
