Biography


Brought up by a mother who loved art, Sudy and all her siblings had an early interest in painting and four of the five became painters.   She studied art at Randolph-Macon Women’s College, Burren College of Art and in classes and workshops with Andy Braitman, Henry Isaacs, Kim English, Brian Blood, Trevor Geoghegan, Charlie Hunter, John Lasater among others.  At Randolph-Macon she was fortunate to be surrounded by a great American art collection which hung in the halls of her Dormitory and in the Library.  In that collection were John Sloan, John Marin, George Bellows, Edward Hopper, Mary Cassatt, and many more.  Her inspirations include many artists living and dead, her mother first of all, then Winslow Homer, Edward Hopper, the Taos Painters, the Ashcan School, Kim English, David Ballew. The list goes on.
 
Sudy grew up in the mountains of Virginia but now lives in South Carolina, where she and her husband raised two sons.  She now enjoys being the grandmother of eight.  She is still attached her native Virginia and visits often, to paint and to visit friends and relatives.
