Sue Dranchak, Artist

Anchorage, Alaska & Phoenix,Arizona

Sue Dranchak's (Dran-chak)'s art career began during her college years at the University of Alaska Fairbanks, where she graduated in the spring of 2001 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Painting. While attending college, she resided in a rustic, one room cabin just west of Fairbanks in an area known as Gold Hill. It was here that she learned the value of simplicity and developed a strong relationship with her surroundings and nature.

In the winter of 2005, Sue traveled outside of Alaska to explore new regions and explore the Sonoran Desert and eventually establshed a second studio and home in Phoenix, Arizona. She currently maintains a home based art studio in Anchorage, Alaska and in Phoenix, Arizona and works seasonally in each location mainly showing her latest artworks at a variety of pop up, outdoor art fairs.

 "It's an interesting situation. I like to travel and enjoy meeting the challenges that each environment has to offer. Travelling between such extreme and diverse geographical locations has kept me from getting into a rut, pushed me beyond my own  boundaries and helped me to grow as an artist and an individual."       ~ Sue Dranchak
