Sue Kelleher
Since first picking up a brush as a child, Sue Kelleher has had an unconditional and deep resolve to create strong images of beauty, grace and life. Painting in oil since childhood, she has mastered the medium to create splendid Landscapes, equine and hunt scenes. Sue was born and raised in Los Angeles. She moved to the East Coast with her husband in 1980. Her training includes studying with professional artists and attending classes in various colleges around the country. She is also a highly regarded oil painting instructor. “I am simply enchanted with life and beauty and I try to capture it. I visualize my paintings as if they were alive.” This decree is clear in Sue’s equestrian hunt series completed after her invitation to watch the Hunts of Northern Virginia. Horses are Sue’s main interest along with Victorian garden scenes and Landscapes.

Red Striped Shade

Linda Holt
Linda’s paintings run the gamut from rich Musical Compositions, inspired by her classical training in music, to vibrant Florals, invoked by fond memories of her mother’s garden. Paintings of Contemporary Interiors, Still Lifes, and Abstracts provide even more variety to her repertoire. Linda’s brush is touched by her own experiences as well as the experiences of people around her. She feels that “working with art is playful” and the following quote best describes how she feels about art. “A master in the art of living draws no sharp distinction between his work and his play, his labor and his leisure, his mind and his body, his education and his recreation. He hardly knows which is which. He simply pursues his vision of excellence through whatever he is doing and leaves others to determine if he is working or playing. To himself, he always seems to be doing both.” Author Unknown
