Sue Huggins Leopard is a book artist and printmaker from Rochester, NY. A sense of memory and a connection to history and myth through images and words is evident in her work and she employs her own wood engravings, relief prints, etchings, collages, letterpress, and handwriting in her books. A particular interest in 19th-century American poets has led to two books based on the works of Emily Dickenson, completed in 2006. Her prints and books are exhibited widely and are held in the collections of the University of Washington, the Athenaeum of Philadelphia, Rochester Institute of Technology, University of Rochester, and the Philadelphia Free Library, among others as well as in private collections.
