New to La Petite Gallerie’s line up of artists is Sue Grilli, whose work is a joyful treat to experience! Her florals as well as her abstract creations elicit more than just visual pleasure. Describing her florals she says, “A garden filled with flowers presents an everlasting inspiration for art. Although there is so much beauty in nature, I am not just painting the flowers. I am painting how the flowers make you feel.”
The woman behind the brush…
Sue Grilli is as passionate about her roles of mother, wife and business woman as she is about her role as painter. Whether using watercolor, oil or acrylic, she paints intuitive abstracts and landscapes that don’t just capture nature at its best, but how experiencing it makes you feel.
Sue’s love for the arts began at a young age and blossomed as she majored in Art Education. However, it was after raising three children and moving from her native New York State to the Low Country in South Carolina that she was able to re-discover her passion for painting. She studied at the Atlanta College of Art as well as under several recognized artists. Now, based in her home studio, she has continued to grow and explore the beauty of nature.
Sue has always been active in her local community arts centers as well as serving on their boards and teaching at local venues. She is looking forward to doing the same here in our booming Bluffton art-centric town. Sharing her joy of painting with others, she invites that spark of creativity within all of us.
