Sue Anne Rische knew from a very early age that she wanted to be an artist. She attended Texas Tech University and the University of Washington, holds two degrees in fine art, and currently teaches college level art in Texas. She considers herself both a multi-media artist and a process artist, first visualizing an idea and then assembling the needed materials to create the work. Much of her work is repetitive and highly detail oriented, the repetition offering her quiet meditation. Currently she makes artwork about privacy and the pitfalls of sharing anything on the internet. After being told many times by many people that her talents extend to both writing and entertaining she has finally decided to write a book and produce art related videos. An outside of the box thinker, she is drawn to things that she finds innovative. “Show me something that I’ve never seen before,” is one of many credos to which she aligns herself. She finds flaws in the art world’s reputation and believes that too many people are intimidated by artwork. Saddened by this, she’s written her first book to welcome the uninitiated into the enriching world of art. She hopes to win over the masses with her own artwork, writing, and videos by presenting art in a new, refreshing, and accessible way.
Sue Anne is currently on sabbatical to learn traditional ink techniques in Japan and European drawing techniques in The Netherlands. She looks forward to new and unusual ways to torture her students upon her return.
