Artist Information for Sue Sherman

Working primarily with hand dyed or dye painted fabrics, my quilts reflect some of my other lifelong passions.

I care deeply about the future of our planet’s ecosystems, which is why my travel and my recent art work feature animals that are threatened or endangered.  Art can inspire us all towards positive action to slow down global warming and help restore some of the precious natural habitats of our planet.

Magellanic penguins nest in large rookeries, vulnerable to sea level rise and oil spills. I love that they are so flexible, which makes them tempting to anthropomorphize.

Floating Honu

My favourite honu (sea turtle) encounters are in the open water where it feels like you are the only two creatures in the world. Based on a photo taken in Hawaii by my husband, Don McCuaig.



Huddle!

Huddle!49.5" x 32.5"  

Magellanic penguins nest in large rookeries, vulnerable to sea level rise and oil spills. I saw this group in Patagonia, and loved their full-body expression and that each one has a unique colour pattern. It was fun to quilt this piece, particularly the individual stones they are standing on.
