Artist of the moment…….Sue Coe

Sue Coe was born in Tamworth, England in the year 1951. I so enjoy artists who look to improve the lives of our animals friends. Coe takes her passion for animals to heart and is renowned for her works celebrating their plight as many species are dying out as human progress impedes their natural habitat. For her collegiate education Coe attended the royal College of Art located in London, England. Coe is a very avid printmaker and painter.

As a child her family lived close to a slaughterhouse thus forming her opinion about the treatment of animals.

In this clip a brief interview with Sue Coe and Jane Velez -Mitchell:

Coe can also be described as a Social Realist attacking such modern issues as A.I.D.S, September 11th , and war.

Sue Coe was elected to the National Academy of Design.

Price range information: Most works range from $1,000 to $12,000.

Sue Coe first had her art appear in the New York Times when she was 21 years old. This was the same year the artist moved to the United States to begin a career as an illustrator.

I always enjoying when artists use their work to promote good causes and ideas they support.
