Sue Richardson: Sean Bean Online's 2013 Featured Artist
Susan A. Richardson was born in the Los Angeles area and attended Art Center college of design. She graduated with honors and started a graphic arts business. A few years later she began teaching silkscreening, drawing, and airbrushing at a local high school. In 2007 Susan was voted best Technical Arts Teacher for all of southern California (including San Diego county). She has also pursued a fine arts career and her work has been shown in several galleries in the Los Angeles, San Gabriel, and the Pomona Art Colony. Susan is a member of the Pomona Valley Art Association and shows her Artwork at the Soho Gallery. She is married to Robert (who is a native American from Pine Ridge South Dakota) he is Oglala Lakota (they used to be called the Souix). He was the person who first made Susan aware of Sean Bean ( in 2005 ). He liked Sharpe's Rifles and wanted her to watch the series with him!! Susan originally started drawing Sean because she wants the America public to know what a fine actor he is. She produced several t-shirt designs (shown here) for his movies to make Sean more recognizable to the average person. Because these are t-shirt designs she displays them in her classroom and talks to her students about the creative process and how she developed the designs from Sean's films. She is currently working on a Game of Thrones t-shirt. In 2008 Susan won an award for her artwork of Sean as the Hitcher. This is the third time that Susan has been selected as Sean Bean Online's Featured Artist, illustrating her dedication to her craft and honoring her subject. Susan and her husband are also part-time forest rangers and work in the Los Angeles Forest above the city of Azusa. Because of her many interests Susan's artwork features Sean Bean, Trout Fishing, Nature, and Native American themes. She is also working on a children's book about a kid and his cat. Don't be surprised if you recognize Sean as the parent in this book!! Susan is also building a website which should be up this year. Feel free to CONTACT her.
