Sue Hand has been painting and drawing her
entire lifetime. Her artwork is included in public and private art collections in nearly every state of the United States as well as ten foreign countries.
On her fifth birthday, Sue announced her intention to be an artist. At the age of 14, she began to teach and enjoy the educational process. She holds a degree in Art Education from Kutztown State College (now Kutztown University) and an Honorary Doctorate of Humanities from King’s College.
She especially enjoys the challenge of working in a series. Her famous Millennium Collection highlights her favorite places within a 30 mile radius of her art studio.
The twelve hundred piece Light & The Land series features the eleven counties of Northeastern Pennsylvania depicted in watercolor, oil, acrylic and pastel.
The Anthracite Miners and Their Hollowed Ground is a three hundred piece acrylic/collage expressionism series memorializing Pennsylvania’s miners.
She has also created series of artworks of Cape May, New Jersey, the coast of Maine, forests and woodlands, and floral/botanicals.
She and her husband, Joseph R. Hand, have owned and operated Sue Hand’s Imagery in Dallas for over 40 years.
The Susquehanna River, a 444 mile ribbon of beauty stretching from Cooperstown, New York to the Chesapeake Bay, is an American treasure rich in history.
For more than 25 years, the Susquehanna River has been a source of fascination and inspiration to Pennsylvania artist Sue Hand. She has created a body of artwork dedicated to showcasing the
Susquehanna River, its neighboring land forms, related structures, and historical highlights.
Her Susquehanna River project, which she named “Susquehanna Song” is comprised of five visual sections:
Historical Acrylic/Collage River Map Canvases
Aquarelle Acrylic Historical Riverscapes
Riverscapes in Miniature
THE ANTHRACITE COLLECTION
I paint the visual as well as symbolic and emotional aspects of landscapes, “for what is seen is only temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.”
