Sue Lee always had a passion for the arts and wanted to attend art school, but her devotion to family came first and she put her dreams on hold. Sue studied fine arts and pre-med sciences at Colgate University to pursue a stable career in medical prosthetics. However, she finally took the risk of pursuing her dreams by attending the Tom Savini Special Makeup Effects program. Growing up with 1st generation Korean American parents, movies and television shows were a medium to understand not only American culture, but magical worlds created by special effects. Sue attributes her creativity and hard work ethics to her mother who owned a boutique store in her hometown of New York City. Immediately upon graduating, she was chosen as one of six women by Makeup Artist magazine to compete in the first New York International Makeup Artists Trade Show prosthetics competition. Her strengths are sculpting and anything that requires great technical skills. Sue hopes her New York attitude, positivity, fresh ideas, and artistic talent will help her win the competition. She is eager for the chance to mature her art and find her vision.
