Formerly trained in Fine Art at Buckinghamshire Chiltern University College Susan works as a full time artist exhibiting in Buckinghamshire, Wiltshire and the West Country. She has taken part in the international Art Festival in Mainz, Germany, the Drawing Marathon, Prince’s Drawing School, London, regular exhibitions in St Ives, Cornwall including St Ives Society of Artists Open exhibition. She also runs acrylic painting workshops and demonstrates at art societies in the area and further afield.
Endlessly fascinated by the sea, its movement, the rocks and surrounding areas Susan often paints directly onto boards or canvas on the beach or in the landscape. Working quickly and intuitively she aims to capture the energy and emotion of the place. These pieces can vary from small studies, sketches or large paintings which are then finished off in oil or acrylic. Just recently the work has developed an abstract quality.
