Sue Heil Kibbe

A resident of Southport since 1993 and a lifelong advocate of the coast of Maine since her first visits to her grandparents’ summer house as a child, Sue has pursued her artistic license in virtually every media while painting and teaching with a specialty in portraiture.


A graduate of Cleveland Institute of Art an Western Reserve University, she is an active member of the Portrait Society of America, the American Society of Marine Artists, the Pastel Painters of Maine, the Plein Air Painters of Maine and serves on the board of the Boothbay Region Art Foundation.

Sue’s philosophy toward painting is summed up in her words: “The more you experience the thrill of painting from life, the more addicted you become. I try to let my enthusiasm translate into both my painting and teaching. Classic romantic realism with a healthy serving of impressionism has become for me the best wayof extolling the beauty of God’s world.”
