My love of Latino folk art, as well as the beauty of all things worn and aged, permeates my work. I continue to search for the "Universal Mother" through timeless icons and archetypes. "She" shows up in my work as Venus fertility figures, the Virgin Mary and images of my mother. Currently, I am exploring my love of Nature through encaustic monotypes and monoprints.

My creative and technical processes consist of surrounding myself in the studio with encaustic wax, oil pastels, artist inks, artist papers, ephemera, sand, bark, leaves, rust, found objects, and photographic images. The scent of molten beeswax gets me into the state of what I call "the other side", or the creative process. Encaustic wax is a very tactile medium, warm and alive, not unlike human skin.

The use of my hands and fingers directly on the wax surface becomes very much a part of the process. I employ many techniques such as scribing into the wax, creating translucent layers of wax, mark-making with oil pastels and water-soluble pencils, rubbing dry pigments onto the wax and embedding my own photo images. My newest passion, encaustic monotypes, employs the use of an aluminum plate on a hot griddle, and "painting" onto the plate with blocks of encaustic wax. Mark-making and the use of stencils also play a large part in this printmaking process."

Sue Robertson

Sue creates acrylic, mixed media and encaustic paintings.  Her style is loose and very colorful, with multiple textures.  Sue considers herself an experimental painter and she often incorporates elements such as ink, graphite, paper, clay and whatever other things she happens across.  Whether she is painting figures, still life or abstract, the subject is simply a vehicle for the color and stroke.  Working from her imagination, she goes wherever the painting takes her and often works on several paintings simultaneously.  She calls her work Joyful Art because creating it brings such joy to her.
