About Sue (also known as Poached Egg Woman

Poached Egg Woman Glides

I live and create art at Kerry Farm near Abernethy in Southeastern Saskatchewan. 

The most frequently asked question I am asked is “Where did the name Poached Egg Woman come from?” You can find that answer here. 

The mediums I like to work with celebrate translucence. This draws me both to watercoloursand working with layers of translucent rice paper. I am inspired by the farm where I live, by the nearby Pheasant Creek Coulee and Qu’Appelle Valley. You can have a glimpse of my world by watching this short video, “Roots and Wings”– created by my neighbour in 2016.

I enjoy sharing my love of art with others, and I do this in a variety of ways. I offer Explorations in Art classes to children and young people. I also offer art PLAYshops (like a workshop but we start from a premise of play and exploration) and retreats for adults and multi-generational groups.  You can check out this video Paper PLay, to learn a little about creating rice paper birds. 

“Between the Cracks” (in memory of Cameron Akapew), 2009 – watercolour, wax
