Sue Kalab is a watercolour artist specializing in Australian nature
My art is a philosophy, a compulsion that can’t be denied. it's a gift, a
calling. It is the art of beauty found in Australian Nature, and I make art for people who like to be comfortable, art that doesn’t shout for attention - just like our natural world.
After all these years I find myself still seeking the mysteries: Nature and our place on Earth. I seek the beauty, the indescribable, the ineffable. This is what I do as an artist.
Sue is also a calligraphy artist, visit - GALLERY OF CALLIGRAPHY.
A portraitist and pet animal painter, see GALLERY OF PORTRAITS.

On another note, Emeritus Dean Stewart MacPherson places
Sue’s art in the company of Henry David Thoreau and the "showings" (or revelations) of Julian of Norwich, and that Sue’s art "captures the essence of the glory of nature … its mystery and meaning, beauty and truth. To see, to truly see, the infinite in the “ordinary” is a
great gift. Artists like Sue bless us by sharing that gift with us.
