Martha Sue grew up the only child of metalwork artists in a small house in the outskirts of Tucson, AZ. The flora and fauna of the Sonoran Desert gave her an eye for the strange and wondrous in nature. She moved to the Bay Area in the early nineties to attend CCA and graduated with a degree in Film/Video and Painting. Since then, her works on paper and sculpture have been exhibited in the Bay Area, Los Angeles, and Montreal. She continues to work in a wide range of media including animation, drawing, painting and most notably, fabric sculpture. Martha Sue lives in San Francisco with her husband Jim and works out of her studio in Potrero Hill. She is currently working towards a February 2008 solo show in the Lab's Front Gallery.
