Born 1949, Forbes, New South Wales
Sue Wooldridge was born in Forbes, Australia. As a child she had rheumatic fever. She arrived in Sydney forty years ago and worked in the ‘rag trade’ and in a convalescent home. Her rich professional experiences create a backdrop for the host of characters she represents in her art, with text accompanying her comic-book approach.
She began painting at the Weave Arts Centre, Sydney, in 2009.
