The Jurors of “Liquid Color”

Sue Gordhammer

Sue Gordhammer lives in Kayenta and serves on Ivins City Council.  She’s more of a left brain person who has spent her career as an engineer working with tech companies and assisting start-ups with usability.  She has flexed her right brain “muscles” on dance, choreography, and appreciation for art and architecture.  Sue spends as much time as possible hiking or mountain biking and enjoys spending time on trails with Joe and their dogs Sarge and Olina.

Jennifer Burch

After losing the majority of her eyesight to a stroke at the age of 37, Jennifer Burch turned to painting as a form of vision therapy. A former corporate executive, she always had a creative side that needed to be fed. Painting quickly became her passion.  Jennifer’s loss of vision has resulted in an extraordinary ability to see shadows and light, capturing the beauty of everyday items on canvas. Her oil paintings are bringing life to homes spanning from Alaska to New England. Jennifer and her husband Jeff moved to Ivins in 2019 and she is excited to start this new chapter in her life as an artist.
