Suzanne McCullough Plowden (Sudi) was born in Abilene, Texas in 1916 to Warren Roy McCullough and Macy Hill McCollough-Nash. Her young life and education transpired in New Orleans where she studied Fine Arts at Tulane University. She and her twin sister Lucerne (Cerni) Robert then moved to New York City and began what became successful art careers for both. The sisters began their professional lives as illustrators for high fashion advertising, later joining Portraits, Inc., a company still at the forefront of traditional fine portraiture today, to promote their portraiture work. While in New York Suzanne and Lucerne became early models for Toni hair color products, whose advertisements invited women to guess "which twin had the Toni" and which one recieved a salon treatment. After World War II, Suzanne married Theodore (Ted) Plowden and moved to Connecticut where she taught at Silvermine Guild of Artists in New Canaan. She traveled with Ted on business trips to Latin America and Asia and lived with him and their son Campbell in Australia, Brazil and India. Suzanne matured as an artist while abroad and saw her work represented by established galleries. She later published a collection of sketches called "Images of India." She moved to Hilton Head, South Carolina in 1980 after Ted retired and continued to work. Suzanne McCullough Plowden's paintings, drawings and studies portray an artist of poise and maturity. They are lyrical views into a world she saw swirling and dancing with natural activity. Her late work captures the fluttery urgency of late summer afternoons, rendered with the sensitvity and seemingly effortless delicacy of long practice. There is a graceful, bittersweet softening of focus as she continued to paint unabashedly beautiful and atmospheric scenes into her later years. Fully blossomed flowers spill from vases, people, birds, water and sky tumble together in seemless activity, sailboats skip into the sunset on an ocean of color. She continued working as long as eyes and hands allowed, passing away on September 3rd, 2018. (Sudi) was surrounded by paintings she made of her family, her pets and her favorite places when she died. Provenance: the family of Suzanne McCullough Plowden.
