Sue Clancy, a fine artist and author/illustrator, pattern designer, makes handmade paper patterns, cuts one-of-a-kind paper shapes with an Xacto knife, and glues them together with her imagination and love of fun and laughter into a new visual story. She carries this playfulness into everything she does – whether for exhibit at an art gallery, a pattern design, a public art project, an artist book or an image for publication.
As she lives life she makes notes and drawings, using a fountain pen, in a “Commonsketchplacebook” as she calls it – these notes and doodles are the raw data that “feed” her art. (“Life is an art” says Sue.) Aka: psychogeography. (A blog post about psychogeography and Sue is here: https://sueclancy.com/2016/08/30/psychogeography-and-me/)
Her frequently occurring artistic themes are: books, music, food, nature, human culture/thought/language – often she uses animal symbols and metaphors. (A blog post about why Sue uses animal symbolism is here: https://sueclancy.com/2016/03/12/animals-in-art/ )
The blog contains her “commonsketchplacebook” pages, the notes and drawings about her travels, life, creativity, art, books, photos of her work-in-progress, patterns that catch her eye and occasionally her recipes for dinner. Yes, she also posts images of her finished fine art and illustrations.
