I first encountered Sue Rowley when she was a lecturer in Art History and Theory at the University of Wollongong. Her razor sharp intelligence and special brand of feminism made me realise the great potential for feminist critiques within the discipline. Her own career in the creative arts sector was only just beginning at that time but she quickly became one of the high flyers in the industry and mentored many in academia, particularly women. I will always remember her as a warm, generous and vivacious woman, a wonderful mentor and someone who lived life to the full. I will always be indebted to her.
