Sue Cunningham moved to Leland North Carolina after retiring from a 34 year career as a psychiatric social worker in Poughkeepsie New York. It was, by chance, that she found she has a passion for abstract painting. She has an ongoing interest in learning different styles and approaches through workshops and describes herself as a workshop junky. She works in acrylic, oil and cold wax, and more recently watercolor. She has received several awards in local art shows.
