About Sue Latta

Sue has been a working artist for over 20 years. She has a BFA in Photography and an MFA in Sculpture. Her work has been collected throughout the United States and Canada, and is included in the Permanent Collection at the University of Nevada Reno, Boise State University, Boise Visual Chronicle, Idaho Shakespeare Festival and numerous private collections. She has done a number of public projects and received grants from the Idaho Commission on the Arts, the Boise City Arts Commission, ImageArt and the Alexa Rose Foundation. 

Sue has served as an Artist in Residence for the LiveStrong Foundation at the Saint Alphonsus Cancer Care Center, the Visual Studies Workshop in Rochester, NY and the Boise City A.I.R. program. 

She is currently an adjunct professor of art at Boise State University. She also owns The Sculpture Studio, a private teaching studio where she teaches a variety of 3-dimensional disciplines.

As an artist Sue is tireless, prolific, and accomplished. She is a consummate craftsman, working seamlessly across a variety of media including photography, metal and wood fabrication, and casting everything from bronze and aluminum to plastic and paper. 

Sue is also an innovator. She developed an image transfer process, which allows the transfer of an inkjet print onto urethane resin thus transforming the photograph into a sculptural medium. 

Her current body of artwork proves that she won't settle into the tried and true, she is going to continue to push the boundaries of whatever material she's working with and create work that is unlike anything you've ever seen before.
