Sue deLearie Adair

Hometown: Schenectady, NY

Sue’s artwork is inspired by her love of the natural world: close to her home in Upstate New York and from far afield. A birder for over 30 years, Sue is an avid naturalist who draws her inspiration and reference material directly from observations made in nature. She features detailed subjects with simple, sometimes even stylized, backgrounds. Sue draws in various combinations of graphite, colored pencil and watercolor. Sue’s work has been juried into a number of national and international exhibits including Birds in Art (Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum) and Art and the Animal (Society of Animal Artists). Her work has also been selected for publication in five of the “Strokes of Genius” best of drawing books published by North Light Books. Sue is a signature member of the Society of Animal Artists and the Colored Pencil Society of America. Her work can be seen at galleries in Jackson, WY, Tulsa, OK and Nags Head, NC.
