Publisher Description

Sue Clancy takes an uncommonly odd view of ordinary objects from around the house and paints them in whimsical situations with animal characters that evoke feelings of magic, wonder and laughter. She's deliberately remixing elements of the common world to tell a new and pleasant story of magic household surrealism.



Her goal is to tell gentle, pleasant and comforting stories because that's what she needed as a kid and what she wants more of as an adult. Clancy views her creations as souvenirs of moments of love and kindness.



Clancy uses gouache, ink, color pencil, acrylic and collage to make her fine art images. The collage text you see in each image is from a falling apart copy of Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen that Clancy had in her house. Austen wrote about emotions and dealing with them so Clancy enjoys the visual pun of including bits of Austen's text in this fine art series. Clancy creates animal characters because an animal behaving like a human highlights our humanity.



Clancy's fine art and artist books have been collected by the Bainbridge Island Art Museum in WA, The UCLA Fine Arts Library in CA, Curtis Children's Justice Center in WA, Washington State University in Vancouver WA, Northwest Surrogacy Center in Portland OR and by many other public and private collections.
