Susan was born in Yorkshire and graduated from Leeds with a BA Honours degree in Three Dimensional Design in 1979. She went on to become a highly respected interior designer but in her spare time worked on her personal passion, fine art painting.
Now an established artist, Susan creates bold and vibrant images which present what she describes as the real world. She sees them as an interpreted record of life through architectural studies of existing surroundings. These explore the mathematics, rhythm and movement within structures and the relationship between man and the built environment in an exciting and immediate style. Her background in design has given her an exceptional command of colour, texture and pattern, which gives these images a dual quality of technical and aesthetic beauty.
Susan is an elected member of both the Chartered Society of Designers and the Society of Architectural Illustrators. Official recognition has also come in the form of awards at the Laing Art Competition, Hunting Art Prizes and Singer & Friedlander/Sunday Times Competition. Her paintings can be found in a number of prestigious collections including those of Dame Janet Baker, the Sir George Martin Trust, Arthur Anderson, Benningbrough Hall, The National Trust, Halifax plc, Natwest Bank and Provident Financial.
