Award winning Northwest artist Sue Coccia is from Edmonds, Washington.
Sue’s Grandmother’s Grandmother was Native American and that tiny bit of heritage has had a large influence on her art. Indigenous art and its relationship with the animal worlds has also influenced Sue’s unique style. A deep love of all animals was instilled at a very young age and Sue has dedicated her life’s work to them. She has a formal art training background; however she was truly inspired by her high school art teacher, d’Elaine Johnson, an internationally recognized artist.
