Artist Profiles » Sue Christie

Sue ChristieSue was born in Auckland, New Zealand, and her attraction to coastal areas may have begun from many childhood days spent at the beach.

Although while in college she took some painting courses and briefly attended Elam Art School, she is largely self-taught.

Prior to her university studies she entered a few competitions, twice winning 1st prize in the oil painting section of the New Zealand Easter Show and 1st prize in the Waihirere Wines Art Awards.

Sue finds inspiration for her coastal scenes from her travels around New Zealand where she takes photos which form the basis for the composition of each painting. She prefers to use oils because of the richness and texture of the paint and the blending options that slower drying time allows.

Her approach has been influenced by a number of artists, many of them photorealists, and her work has been exhibited in various group shows around New Zealand.
