Susan is an intuitive artist, responding emotively to elements in nature and personal experiences to represent lasting visual impressions. After being involved in painting and drawing from an early age, Susan returned to the art world in 2015 to pursue her lifelong passion for painting full time after retiring from teaching.

Imprinted memories inspire the creation of each painting and relate to special places, people and events that have enriched her life as a wife, mother, friend and teacher to many. A variety of found and recycled mark making tools are utilised, alongside traditional brushes and palette knives, to recreate patterns in nature and manipulate images spontaneously. With an emphasis on the interplay of colours, shapes and lines, these are laid down in layers, using a process of washes and marks in acrylics, inks and oil pastels.
Whilst working predominately in abstract, Susan also paints impressionist and traditional portraits, landscapes and still life in oils, acrylics and mixed media.
