Announcement   Welcome to Sue Lion : ink! Look for GREETING CARDS • ART PRINTS • AFFIRMATION DECKS • MINI-DECK KEYRINGS • BOOKS and CHILDREN'S BOOKS • COLORING BOOKS - all created from original drawings and words by me. My inspired and often whimsical drawings touch the magical side of life. Using original poetry with ink and colored pencil, they speak of gentleness, hope, and the tender touch of Mother Earth. Look for subtle symbolism in most - some even have some “hidden in plain sight” attributes, which are described on each item.

All the originals are created on acid-free, professional grade paper - high quality prints, 5"x7" greeting cards, decks of animal and affirmation cards, sets of miniature drawings on keyrings, and award-winning children's books and coloring books.

My newest book, Night Threads, is written for adults. It's a collection of very vivid, movie-like dreams I've had through the years that are filled with insight and symbolism. I have given them words, a voice. Along with the dream is a reflection, a part of my life that I think represents the symbolism in the dream. I've also created a companion coloring book with the 28 illustrations that are in the book.

My children's books are stories to help kid's become more aware of their surroundings and relationships with others. How the Trees Got Their Voices is a modern myth, tied into the workings of the earth and her many creatures, a gentle story told about the trees and their request for voices. Along the edges are "sticky notes" with fun facts about the earth, animals, and plants. White Butterfly and Her Wings of Many Colors tells the heroic quest of a spectacular white-winged butterfly with wonderful gifts of courage, speed, and helpfulness. But vanity takes over and she learns that true gifts don't come from an outside facade but rather from the core of her uniqueness. Both have won numerous national awards and reviews.

Giclee-quality prints are available for a selection of images, which include drawings and pastels. Please contact me!

About

Creating art to honor Mother Earth

Sitting in a concert one evening, I had an amazing visual image of the music accompanied with a flow of words and images that expressed what I was feeling. I quickly started drawing on my program, trying to capture the movement and harmony, putting an audio message into a visual form. That was the beginning. I’ve gone to many concerts since then and continue to be amazed at how visual music really is. My InWord Art collection has evolved over the years but the common thread is music. Songs come in many forms – a sweet cello in a string quartet or a cheerful bird in the trees close to my house. All evoke a poetic place inside me to draw and write – my InWord place.

The animal drawings have come from a different place but one still associated with nature. I’ve studied the spiritual attributes of animals that the Ancients have observed. Since they didn’t separate the physical from the spiritual, I’ve tried to add symbolism to each drawing that reflects that connectedness. All the animals teach us about our physical walk on the earth and the spiritual walk of our hearts. The words have come from what I’ve learned, then distilled down to mesh with the drawings.

Magical and mermaids – it’s fun to see the possibilities and be tuned in to what our human eyes don’t – or won’t – see. Mother Earth and the Universe work in mysterious ways.

Thank you for taking the time to look at my work. My hope is the energy I’ve instilled into each drawing will give you hope and let you live with harmony, at least at this moment.
