Sue Gallion has always been interested in the artistic and creative world. As a teenager growing up in Kansas, she designed and made all of her own clothing, as well as clothing for her family and friends. Soon after her wedding, she moved to Denver, Colorado, where she put her husband through law school, raised their six children, and started designing clothing for exclusive shops throughout the area.
In 1974, the family was transferred to Kingwood, Texas, outside of Houston. There, Sue opened her own antique shop and became a member of the Kingwood Area Quilt Guild, the Houston Quilt Guild, and the International Quilt Guild of Houston. During the years in Texas, she expanded her portfolio to include stained glass, ceramics, quilting, fiber arts and oil, acrylic and watercolor painting.
In 1997, Sue moved permanently to Steamboat Springs, Colorado, where she mangaged the final construction details of her home and studio in the beautiful Yampa Valley. She became a member of the Steamboat Arts Council and has been a featured artist in several local and national exhibits. Sue has won numerous awards in local and state competitions and she has been published in national magazines and newspapers.
Sue's very popular Sue Gallion Originals artwear hats are available in retail shops throughout Colorado and additional pieces in her portfolio of multi-media work are on exhibit at the Pine Moon Gallery in Steamboat Springs.
