While she and her husband raised three children, Lue worked as a landscape architect and has remained active in the community and church. In an average year she donates many paintings to charitable organizations, schools, churches and social organizations. With oil paints her selected medium Lue paints as often as she can creating many scenes from the local area. She paints what she knows best; the woods and the prairies of South Louisiana.
Although Lue has been painting only a few years, her experience as a professional designer brings a cultured maturity to her work. The work produced since 2002 has created more than 20 shows for galleries and art events in the Lafayette and Baton Rouge, Louisiana area.
Lue has been influenced by the techniques of Sergei Bongart, George Inness and her teacher Pat Bourque of Lafayette, Louisiana. Often than her degree in landscape architecture from LSU, her art education has consisted of individual art classes and seminars. She is a member of the Lafayette Art Association.
