His work has been shown in galleries and museums across the United States, while also being reproduced in publications in more than 16 countries.

The unique style of Sue’s paintings is as diverse as the culture and creative environment of Memphis. Sue believes today we are forced to contend with the forces of light and darkness. What causes a person to desire one or the other has always been a mystery. In her paintings, these forces find harmony, rhythm and adventure. Sue is the owner of Sue Layman Designs in the South Main Historic Arts District.
