Close observation combined with imagination.
Sue explores a particular theme through a variety of media, techniques and compositions. Drawing is a vital element and underpins all of these investigations, whether in the form of preparatory sketches or as completed pieces in their own right. 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 2020 Sue was one of the artists shortlisted for the inaugural £10,000 Castlegate Prize.
