    About Sue Liu - Wildcard Sue

    I’m an author, artist, and conservation advocate called Wildcard-Sue. I draw realistic, intricate illustrations of Australian native wildlife from land, sea, and sky using Artline pens and markers. I’m marine specialist as an artist as I scuba dive and study marine animals in their natural environment. I share my art, stories, and adventures under the sea and on land, raising awareness of lesser-known or vulnerable Australian wildlife and marine animals.
    My education delivered through workshops are an innovative, integrated learning experience based on my own work to unblock creativity, nurture new skills and explore. I’m a self-taught illustrator and artist. I work to educate, engage, and inspire conservation efforts in an ‘engage, not enrage’ way. I hope to introduce, guide, and encourage others thorough their own
    journey exploring creativity and self-expression. Find out more at
