artist bio

Sue Lawton was born and raised in the Milwaukee area and received her BFA from Cardinal Stritch University in 2002. As both an artist and writer, she considers her job a balance between image and narrative.

Her current works center around a science fiction novel she has begun releasing as serial mini-books. The artworks serve as artifacts and character studies from this fictional world that often overlaps real life settings and scenarios.

Sue published her first book, "The Circus and the Cyclone" in 2011 and in 2014 created "The Fire Keepers" in conjunction with a residency at the Sharon Lynne Wilson Center for the arts. She completed a residency at Gallery 224 in Port Washington in 2015 and a two year program at Redline Milwaukee in 2016. She remains a part of the Redline community in the alumni studios.
