Sue Wademan

Sue Wademan is a textile "painter. Although Sue has a severe visual impairment, Sue has not let this affect her life in any way. She has travelled teaching her free motion stitching/ textile collage technique style of "painting" in many memorable countries. Each country inspires a series of different artworks. She is therefore known nationally and internationally, particularly Australia, Japan and Europe. Most often she "paints" landscapes as these are so inspirational in the various countries she visits, but her series on Italy was mtoivated by the roof tops of the various villas in Introdacqua in Abruzzo, Italy, producing a wonderful series of the "built" rather than the natural environment.

Many mistake her work from a distance as literally painted, but on closer inspection, you can perceive the textiles and free motion stitching creating a masterpiece of absolute intrigue.

The defining moment in her career was in 2013 when she won the Best Landscape Award at the prestigious Aspiring Art Awards exhibition in Wanaka NZ. 

Sue has been living in Queenstown for over 16 years now, and hasn't looked back since leaving a burgeoning career in Australia. She can be found at her studio at least 4 days a week, whilst other days are spent sharing her talent, teaching her technique.
