Thank you for visiting Poached Egg Woman!!
About Sue (also known as Poached Egg Woman)
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 use are watercolours, paper collage and mixed media. I love translucence. This draws me both to watercolours and 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. In this video Paper PLay, I am showing a group how to make birds using rice paper.
