Award-winning, Ocala artist Sue Primeau finds inspiration in her travels and the beauty that surrounds our everyday life.  Sue works primarily in watercolor, a medium she prefers not to control.  She often begins by letting the shapes and colors occur spontaneously with little or no guidance, then she determines how to develop the hidden painting. 

Her work has been licensed on greeting cards and many of her works and painting lessons are published in how-to books by internationally known, WI artist, Karlyn Holman on the subject of watercolor painting.  Aside from painting Sue loves to teach watercolor locally and on her international travel adventures.  Sue continues to seek instruction from a number of extraordinary watercolorists and teachers from a myriad of disciplines. 


As an instructor, she finds joy exploring the medium through the eyes of her students and excitement with each person’s growth. 

Find Sue’s portfolio at or through her affiliations with Artist Alley, Rainbow Springs Art, Florida Watercolor Society, Ocala Art Group and the Citrus Watercolor Society.
