About Sue (also known as Poached Egg Woman)

I am an artist living in Southeast Saskatchewan who also offers a variety of guided experiences in art and nature.

Typically, I offer art PLAYshops, outdoor adventures and retreats. In winter, PLAYshops sometimes revolve around our outside skating pond and can involve skating  as well making ice lanterns and snow sculptures. In all other seasons, we often head  to nearby Pheasant Creek Coulee or the Qu’Appelle Valley to immerse ourselves in nature and then respond artistically. During the pandemic, I have offered adapted versions of these PLAYshops, art experiences and guided hikes, usually for private groups or individual families. If you are interested, please contact me directly.

All the art that you see throughout the website is for sale, unless the caption indicates that a piece is sold. You can check out recent art here, but there is art for sale in most of the galleries. Art cards are available here. You can find a mixture of original pieces, giclee reproductions and art cards in my online Etsy Shop.

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 watercolours and working with layers of translucent rice paper. I am inspired by the farm where I live,  and by the nearby Pheasant Creek Coulee and Qu’Appelle Valley. If you would like to learn more about me, consider watching this video made in Spring 2021.
