Thank you for visiting Poached Egg Woman!!
About Sue (also known as Poached Egg Woman)
The photo above was taken in April of this year on a beautiful finger of land overlooking Pheasant Creek Coulee. The beautiful dog running towards you is Mia! During this time of isolation due to Covid 19 – I am one of the lucky ones. I have the time and the space to go roaming in the natural world and thus, feed my spirit. I live and create art not too far from where this photo is taken – at Kerry Farm near Abernethy in Treaty Four Territory, Southeastern Saskatchewan.
During this time of isolation, I am offering some distance instruction and accompaniment to anyone who would like it, but especially those who are part of Explorations in Art and Nature. Please enquire if you are interested. For those wishing for ideas of what they create at home, check out Make Art at Home. 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.
In normal times, 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. You can have a glimpse of my world by watching this short video, “Roots and Wings”– created by my neighbour in 2016.
Explorations in Art (and Nature) is an ongoing offering which can be tailor made to suit your or your family’s needs. 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.
