Chicago-based artist Sue Shanahan is best known for her portraits that capture the essence of her subjects on canvas. Artwork for Disney World, illustrations for Cricket Magazine, limited edition prints, greeting cards, paper dolls, and children’s books have brought her work into an ever widening circle of recognition. For three years, Sue was given the honor of designing and illustrating the Illinois State Library’s “Family Reading Night” campaign poster. Her work even found its way into the White House where her portrait of Chelsea Clinton hung in the former First Lady’s private study.
