We recently had the good fortune of having a superb artist come for a stay at Mermaid Cottages! Sue Tobey White is a sculptor and painter from Belfast, Maine. Her vibrant, color filled canvases invite you in and surround you with delicious textures and fun themes. From her beautiful beach scenes and lively dancers to her delectable vegetables, there’s no way to keep from smiling when viewing her work!
If you ever get the chance to visit Belfast, Sue’s gallery is a must-see! She founded the High Street Studio and Gallery in 2002 and now she and other artists have their work there.
Sue taught elementary art for fifteen years in the Belfast area and now offers classes and workshops at High Street Gallery. Her work is inspired by the colors and symbols of children’s art as well as her love of Maine and her surroundings. Sue received her Bachelor degree in Art Education at Southern Connecticut State College and has attended numerous workshops in multiple mediums including watercolor, mask making, puppetry, clay, collage, doll sculpture, and color theory. According to Sue, workshops help to feed her need to create!
We are so honored to claim Sue as a fellow Mermaid. Hopefully, she will make it back to Tybee real soon! If you are interested in learning more about Sue Tobey White and her art work, make sure to visit her website. Better yet, if you’re in the area, don’t miss exploring her gallery at 149 High Street, Belfast, Maine. Either way, you’ll definitely be inspired!
