I was born Cullman, Alabama, and received a BA degree from St. Bernard College. I moved to south Florida in 1993 and started the business which is now Sue Appleton’s Walls of Art, Inc. in 1994. For 18 years the business has specialized in faux finishes, decorative painting, murals, trompe l’oeil, fine art and portraits.
Starting out as a self-taught artist, I have studied extensively over the years with some of top names in the business such as Nicola Virgini, San Antonio,TX; Pascal Amblard, Paris, France; and Shawn Crosby, New York, NY. I have been featured several times in “Faux Effects World,” an international faux magazine.
I have had the privilege of painting in some of the most beautiful homes in the world, right here in south Florida. I am a licensed painting contractor and have worked with the top designers and contractors here and in Georgia.
Today my concentration is mostly fine art, murals, and portraits (both human and animal). My studio is located is Jupiter, Florida. I exhibit at many of the South Florida art shows and I am happy to do commissioned work.
