Thank you for visiting Poached Egg Woman!!
About Sue (also known as Poached Egg Woman)
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. PLAYshops take place at our farm near Abernethy, as well as all around Saskatchewan, especially at Fort Qu’Appelle and sometimes in Regina.
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.
The most frequently asked question I am asked is “Where did the name Poached Egg Woman come from?” You can find that answer here.
I am inspired by the farm where I live, and by the nearby wild areas which include Pheasant Creek Coulee and Qu’Appelle Valley. If you would like to learn more about me, consider watching this video made in Spring 2021 (hence the mask!!).
“Where will the Frogs Sing?” is a collaboration between myself and photographer Vera Saltzman. Together, we are exploring small remnants of land near our homes (in the aspen parkland of Saskatchewan) considering both their beauty and their rapid destruction to make more space for agriculture, homes and buildings. As we spend time on the land, we ask ourselves: What is my relationship to the land? What does society value? Why do these small remnants of land matter? Our creative responses include a blog, a series of zines and participation in a group show at the Art Gallery of Regina entitled “The View from the Edge of the World” from August 18 – October 22, 2023.
On Saturday, November 18th from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. I will be part of the Cathedral Holiday Craft Market at the Westminster United Church on 13th Avenue in Regina. I look forward to having a visit with you there. A few people have ordered art cards which they will pick up when they come to the craft sale – feel free to order ahead of time and if at all possible, I will try to fulfill your request.
