Sue Fierston’s art studio is just outside Washington, D.C. She teaches workshops in gyotaku, the Japanese art of fish printing, as well as other fine arts classes, in the studio arts program at the Smithsonian Museums and is an artist-in-residence at Yosemite National Park in California. In 2021, Sue was elected president of the international Nature Printing Society, printmakers with a focus on the art of printing from nature.

Her prints and paintings are held in public and private collections, including the National Institutes of Health, Yosemite National Park, and MedStar Georgetown University Hospital. Most recently, she completed “Garden Meditations,” a mural at Med Star Georgetown, covering 18 nine-foot concrete columns with colors reflecting the healing garden beyond.

For over 15 years Sue Fierston has been a teaching artist, collaborating with teachers to bring art into schools. She grew up in the Marshall Islands, wading with tropical fish on the reef at low tide.
