Social-protest artist, illustrator, and journalist Sue Coe attended London’s Royal College of Art. In 1972, she moved to New York, where she immediately began illustrating for major newspapers and magazines, including The New York Times. Coe has since written and illustrated several books and has contributed to such diverse publications as Mother Jones, the Times (London), Discover Magazine, and the People’s Daily World.

Coe dedicates her art to influencing individuals to change the world. The subjects she has focused on include animal rights, the meat industry, racism, apartheid, the AIDS crisis, the Ku Klux Klan, and rape. Her work has appeared in exhibitions at the Hirshhorn Museum, the Chicago Art Institute, the Museum of Modern Art, the Georges Pompidou Center, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art.
