About the Artists Sue Hoy
“As an artist, I am trying to capture the spirit of my subject by reducing details and concentrating on light and shape. My paintings are rich in color and bold in brushwork. I am inspired by nature’s beauty and the chance to interpret it in simple, yet compelling ways.”
Sue Hoy is a painter, graphic designer and art teacher living in Milton MA. Her inspiration comes from her family and the endless beauty of New England. Choosing subjects that capture attention and emotion, Sue strives to simplify shape and color to reflect the essence of her subject. Her voyage toward simplicity, versus over-working and illustrating with paint, is ongoing. Her paintings have been in numerous shows in Massachusetts and she currently has a solo show at Abby Park in Milton, MA. She teaches painting and clay classes for children in the Milton public schools and at Milton Art Center.

Lisa WB Walker
I fell in love with a color: Robin’s egg blue; and, it defined summer for me. Early morning bird calls greet a warm rising sun that announces day break. Watch the soft wind blowing a sheer textured curtain as you lay blinking sleep from your eyes. You are young, free from school, and you feel what summer really is.
