Sue Gurnee

Board Member

Sue Gurnee is founder of Growing Wheel, a sanctuary and retreat center in the Boone area. She is also a world-renowned painter and landscape designer for museums, film sets, and animal habitats worldwide.

Sue’s experience with arts nonprofit boards, respect for place and architecture, and decades of dedication to the arts brings a powerful ingredient to the Azule board mix. A visit autumn of 2020 piqued her interest in Azule. In Camille’s wood and glass palace Sue felt a resonance, not just with this physical retreat space Camille had brought to being, but with Camille’s singular vision and ability to complete magnificent things against all odds.

Our Mission & Vision

Azule is dedicated to both the Arts & our Community through the promotion of programs dedicated to facilitating exchange and providing opportunity.
