Sue Westin has come a long way from her days as a five year old studying art at the Wadsworth Athenaeum in Hartford, Connecticut. Over the years Westin has been a versatile artist, an explorer of mediums and subjects. Once a stone sculptor, then a theorem painter, and for several years an avid watercolorist, she now paints primarily in oils. Her subjects have diversified as well. If one could view a complete collection of her works, one would find not only wildlife, but also domestic animals, still-life's, landscapes, boat scenes, and, most recently, human portraiture.
Westin's paintings are in private collections across the US and in the permanent collections of The Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum, WI; The Bennington Center For the Arts, VT and the Worrell Collection, VA. Examples of Westin's art can be found in the following publications: The Best of Wildlife Art, North Light Books, 1997; The Best of Wildlife Art II, North Light Books, 1999; Wildlife Art, Rockport Publishers, 1999; and Wildlife Art News Man/Apr. 1998 & Sept./Oct. 1989.
