Susan is a visual artist who works from life. Having trained as an illustrator she undertook a Research Masters Degree in Art and Design at Plymouth University in 2006.
Using traditional materials she likes to experiment with the boundaries between drawing and painting, life and abstraction, and uses repetition to reveal ideas regarding identity within her work.

“I am an experimental artist grounded in the traditional values of drawing and painting, whilst subtly employing theories on identity, which are then imbued within the images I make.”

Susan also runs Weymouth Drawing Group and teaches painting and drawing skills in Weymouth and Sherborne.

Exhibiting regularly in the region, Susan has recently exhibiting with Wessex Contemporary Arts at Dorset County Museum and Durlston Country Park and in 2014 her work was selected for the Thelma Hubbard Open. Recent projects include a two-year exhibition with the National Trust at Max Gate supported by the Arts Council and a themed exhibition based at the Nothe Fort.
