Sue Jean Covacevich

(1905-1998)     A dynamic artist and art educator, Sue Jean spent most of her life in south-central Kansas.  She studied with Birger Sandzen at Bethany College and is one of the few artists who did not adopt his palette and style.  A trip to Mexico City lead to her marriage and a decade spent being inspired by her surroundings, including muralist Diego Rivera.  In the mid-1940’s she moved back to Kansas with her two daughters.  During this time she established the art department at Southwestern College and an art therapy program at the former Winfield State Training School.
