Sue Alter, Treasurer 2022 and 2023

Life Long Learner

Art has become one of the loves of my life with my retirement years. After having raised my family of five children ages ago and completing a career in mental health nursing and counseling, I undertook the task of once again reinventing my lifestyle through making art. Or, has art made me? It has been a wonderful journey and has satisfied me in continuing my life long learning. 

I began being devoted to art in my pre-retirement years in baby steps studying under various instructors in Wisconsin and Florida. I will always be a student but am willing to share what I have learned along the way. 

As a member of the Palm Beach Watercolor Society and the Geneva Lakes Art Foundation, I have been fortunate to expand my understanding of art through the eyes of other artists both amateur and professional. 

My husband and I purchased our retirement home in Briny in 1999 using it as rental property until we retired. When we finally were able to live in Briny, I joined the Briny Art League. It didn’t take long before I became an officer, and I've been serving as an officer ever since. I started out as 1st vice president, then president, then 1st vice president, and now for the 2021-2022 season I will be serving as treasurer.
