Susan's work reflects the lights and colours of Nature and its landscape. She feels its form, the wildlife it contains, and invites the viewer to step in and enjoy. Her work captures a mood or moment, using vibrant colour, movement and drama. Often portraying a narrative, her work invokes a freedom of spirit and mindful escape.
Drawing and painting since childhood, Susan studied Fine Art at Stourbridge College of Art and Design, and trained as a miniaturist at Halcyon Days Enamels Ltd. As one of their Premier Artists for over 25 years, she hand-painted Georgian inspired vitreous enamels for clients worldwide, including Japanese and English royalty.
Working solely as a professional artist since 2013, Susan undertook self training in vitreous enamel kiln work, watercolour and pastel, and has been printmaking for the last two years.
All of her work is created in her home studio within the heart of the glassmaking town of Stourbridge or at The Birmingham Printmakers, West Midlands, UK.
