Sue Ennis

Artist member since 2018
Toronto, ON

I am an abstract painter based in Toronto. My art is driven by colour and intuition. What unites all of my work, and what moves me most, is the love of colour, texture, energy, and a deep appreciation of the process of painting. The painting journey continues to be an intuitive and exploratory one. Having discovered how creativity can energize a space and a life, I have been happy to share that excitement by teaching art workshops for the past several years. I was honoured to be elected to The Ontario Society of Artists and I serve on the board of the OSA. For more of my abstract works, please check out my website or follow me on Instagram www.sueennisartist.com. www.instgram.com/SueEnnisArtist Instagram.com/ sueennisart Facebook/ sue.ennis.94

Q+A

Why is it important for people to have art in their home or life?

Art can energize a space and it can energize your life, both in the creating of art and in appreciating the artworks of other people.

What artists do you admire right now?

Lucien Freud for his thick paint textures, Turner for his ethereal colours

Favourite medium

I enjoy working abstractly in a variety of styles from quiet landscapes in oil on canvas to much more energetic acrylic and very large abstract acrylic paintings to reverse paintings on plexiglass. So I don't think I could say that I have a favourite medium. What unites all of my work is a love of colour, and texture, and a deep appreciation of the process of painting.
