Artist Biography

Sue develops observational studies fluidly using a wide range of individual or mixed media. Sequences of work emerge as the aesthetic impact of a chosen subject is explored. Sometimes a two dimensional drawing will evolve into a mixed media collage, the collage then growing into a relief or even fully into three dimensions.
Paintings have been exhibited in the UK, France and Germany and are now in numerous private collections. Commissions, residencies and opportunities have resulted in works being on permanent display in such diverse venues as JD Weatherspoons “Spon Gate”, Coventry and the National Trust’s Orangery at Charlecote Park.
In addition to successful one-person exhibitions, paintings have been selected for inclusion in prestigious shows at Derby, Birmingham and Stafford Museums as well as at the Royal Watercolour Society, Royal Birmingham Society of Artists and St David’s Hall Cardiff. Sue’s election as a full member of the National Society of Graphic Fine Artists [SGFA] recognises the importance she places on drawing in all its forms. Her considerable teaching experience has encompassed history of art as well as fine art and design technology and Sue currently runs popular, informal monthly art appreciation workshops at the village hall, Stanton in Peak.
