ABOUT SUE TODD

  • Sue Todd graduated from the Ontario College of Art (now OCADU) and plunged into the world of retail advertising. After ten years she said, “Enough already! I want to do something fun and creative!” Sue returned to her kindergarten roots as a potato carver and took up linoleum cutting with a vengeance! Twenty years later, Sue has carved enough linoleum to tile most of North America and she continues to create whimsical linocut illustrations for adult and children’s publishers, magazines and more. Her scanned linoleum prints are coloured in Photoshop, the perfect marriage of analog and digital technologies. Sue is an award-winning illustrator who loves translating words into pictures. She is presently writing and illustrating her first graphic novel, and painting portraits in oils. Just for fun!

ARTIST STATEMENT

  • “There is no such thing as inner peace. There is only nervousness and death.”
