"A cell can be described as the functional unit of a larger whole. I think about cells as an organizing device in many contexts, but the biological cell is a particular source of fascination for me. These shapes live in my mind and are the building blocks of my world and my art."

While pursuing a degree in Molecular biology and master's in biomedical illustration, Sue created her vision of the microscopic universe in painted and quilted textile constructions.
