About: Serene is a contemporary collection of abstract images created by American artist Sue Jachimiec. After graduation from the University of Lowa, Sue worked on the trading floor at the Chicago Board of Trade. Desiring a break from the hustle and bustle of city life, she moved to Richmond, VA, pursued her artistic passion and quickly became connected within the art community. Today Sue works with a variety of mediums, such as oil and cold wax, encaustic, and acrylic. Many of her days are spent experimenting in her studio. The process of manipulating layers to allow for a surface rich in texture is a main theme throughout her work.
