About Sue Shehan

Sue was raised in the Kansas City area and attended the University of Kansas from 1976-1980, graduating in illustration.  She moved to Omaha, then to Denver in 1997.  She has taken classes at the Art Students League of Denver.  Sue participates with the Burning Hearts Workshops of Denver.  She is a member of the Pastel Society of Colorado.

Sue is thrilled with the journey and all that she learns each time she picks up a pastel – it’s an unforgettable process and one that she treasures.
