Susan was born in the North East of England.
For More than twenty years now she has felt compelled to create art. In 2006 her first nervous attempt at painting on canvas proved to be a wonderful turning point which sparked a chain of life changing events leading to exhibitions across Cumbria, Newcastle, and Edinburgh.
Susan chooses to live and work mostly in isolation; it keeps her mind free, allowing her to paint from imagination. This is the touchstone to explore an inner world of feelings and dreams.
“I like my work to have a happy or magical element to it. Art should make you smile as well as think. I feel I have the perfect career. When I am painting everything seems right, the outside world falls away and I am immersed in my own subject and experience. When starting each new painting I visualise in my mind the key elements of the work and paint directly onto the canvas. I use acrylics because they dry very quickly.”
“Every painting is a challenge for pleasure and enjoyment.”
