Sue Eldridge Ward is an artist based in New Jersey known for her vibrant and eclectic artwork. Her creative inspiration is drawn from various sources, including pop culture, media, nature, and pareidolia—the psychological phenomenon of perceiving familiar patterns or faces in random stimuli.
Ward's artistic process typically begins with a photograph, which she then incorporates into her work through layering or collage techniques. This approach allows her to create visually striking graphic imagery and abstract impressionism.
Throughout her career, Ward has showcased her artwork in both solo and group exhibitions. She has been featured in numerous regional group shows and her work has been displayed in prestigious institutions such as the Newark Museum and the New Jersey State Museum. One of the significant milestones in Ward's career was being selected to participate in the 2022 New Jersey Arts Annual Exhibit, titled "Reemergence."
