Fine Art Plein Air Painter
Minnesota Artist Sue Wipf grew up working on the family farm — admiring the skies and the natural beauty all around her. Her Plain Air painting, values and perspective on the world are highly influenced by that experience. An avid gardener today, she enjoys artistic expression through her love for nature in her Plain Air painting and studio painting.
Sue Wipf lives by an environmental lake frequented by trumpeter swans, great blue herons, eagles, hawks and ducks, allows her the privilege of observing beauty every day. Also nearby are 2600 acres of parkland with native prairie grasses and flowers. “Though realistic in my painting technique, I look for the wondrous abstract patterns in nature and still life, and strive for the less is more philosophy. Painting outdoors brings excitement in capturing the emotion of that moment through color and light.”
Vermeer, Sargent, Turner, Sorolla have influenced Sue. She has studied at the Schroeder Studio and taken workshops from Master artists.
Sue Wipf is a member of Outdoor Painters of Minnesota, and an associate member of Oil Painters of America, Women Artists of the West, Plein Air Artists Colorado and the American Impressionist Society.
