Sue Drown Trout-Batik Artist Spotlight

Sue Drown-Trout, our resident Batiking teacher, has been creating her own beautiful batiked creations for over 16 years. Sue is a very talented artist with a very interesting story: She began her career as an Art Therapist, working with developmentally disabled adults at the Laconia State School in New Hampshire. After receiving a Masters in Art Therapy from Pratt Institute, she worked as the Child & Family Therapist at the Nassau County Coalition against Domestic Violence in Long Island, New York. Upon the birth of their first child, Suzanne moved to Maine with her husband and baby son, where she began working with batik in earnest. Suzanne split her time between working as a part-time school-based substance abuse counselor and launching a line of batik clothing called Alexander’s Rags. After a few years, she began to create framed work, hangings and other original and reproduced work and Alexander’s Rags became Sunfire Batiks. Best known for both the whimsy and beauty of her work, Suzanne focuses on themes that celebrate children, nature and the journey we all share. We are grateful to have her on our team at Artascope Studios and hope you take the time to check her out. Here is her latest show schedule for 2008. You can also find her at the Artascope Studios Gallery 7 days a week 9-7.
