Curriculum Vitae

Artist - Sue Lederhose‚ nee Mollenhauer

Sue was born in Murgon in the baby boom of the post war era. She was raised on a mixed dairy farm‚ the middle child of 6 children. While at high school she dabbled in oil paints and developed an enduring love of country landscapes.

Her first teaching position was to Bamaga‚ the extreme tip of Cape York. The strong art culture of the traditional Islander people was inspiring and many of these designs were used in her own fabric printing. Sue was transferred to in Mundubbera in 1980. Here she married‚ worked in all the schools around Mundubbera including Eidsvold‚ ran a business‚ raised a family and generally became part of the community‚ the church and the volunteer groups. Her interest in art was confined to teaching and promoting it in the schools.

At the beginning of 2002 she decided it was time to pursue the long held dream of learning to paint with watercolors. The transparent beauty and the flow of watercolors were a strong attraction. Watercolor techniques were learnt from books obtained from the local library. In December of that year her fifth child was born but the art continued.

Sue’s inspiration is anything in God’s creation. She loves to paint landscapes‚ flowers and portraitures‚ both animal and people. Pastels and various mixed media has been explored but she keeps coming back to watercolour, her first love.

The artist has always entered as many art shows and exhibitions as possible and from the onset she has won prizes‚ first with her graphite and charcoal work‚ later with her watercolours and her pastel work. She believes competitions are an excellent way to gauge the quality of your own work‚ expose artworks for sale and move on towards professionalism.

Teaching art has been a goal for her from the beginning. She has found teaching art classes to be particularly rewarding. Her personal goals are to continue to learn from other artists and develop her own style in graphite‚ charcoal‚ pastel and watercolour. Exhibiting widely and selling her work is part of her professional approach as well as judging. The artist knows the she is only beginning an exciting journey that will take the rest of her life.
