About the Artist


Sue Norton-Scott is recognized for her conceptual, clever, wall-mounted 3D artwork. Attaching objects to her mixed media canvases allows her to physically break the frame, encouraging viewers to break their own boundaries and perceptions. Always open to diverse interpretations, her images live in the space between the eerie and the humorous.

Norton-Scott’s art has been displayed in galleries in New York City, Brooklyn, Chicago, Sacramento, and Seattle; as well as the Herberger Theater Gallery, Mesa Contemporary Arts Museum, Phoenix Center for the Arts, Arizona State University, and Shemer Art Center in Phoenix. She was selected for the city of Mesa’s “Play Me, I’m Yours” Street Piano project, and teaches in the Tempe Elementary School’s Studio Artist Program.

A retired public school teacher with a Bachelor of Music degree from the State University of New York at Potsdam, and a Master of Arts degree in Interdisciplinary Humanities from California State University at Dominguez Hills, Norton-Scott is currently an adjunct faculty in the Humanities Department at Rio Salado College.

Born in Schenectady, NY, Norton-Scott has called Arizona home since 1979.  She volunteers for Rescue a Golden of Arizona (a Golden Retriever rescue organization), and plays bass flute in the renowned  Central Arizona Flute Ensemble (CAFE).
