Sue McElligott was born in Sacramento, CA in 1964. McElligott began painting in 2006, but has always been around the Arts world, having her poetry first published when she was 8 years old.
Using predominantly acrylic paint and sometimes adding mediums including tissue paper, buttons, and other items around the house, McElligott also chooses to paint over her work multiple times to get a desired textured and layered effect.
McElligott’s influences are varied, but she has always admired the works of Picasso, Pollock, Van Gogh, and Matisse. Always interested in painting, McElligott simply bought the materials needed one day and begin making art. Music is a must to have on while working in her studio. Choosing the music that motivates her at that moment is essential to what ends up on the canvas.
McElligott moved to Nevada City, CA from the Sacramento area with her husband and pets in 2000.
The Mission of the Miners Foundry Cultural Center is to preserve, enhance and utilize the historic Miners Foundry for cultural, educational and social activities. The Foundry is a non profit organization.
