Susie is drawn to quiet places in nature. Sunlit trees; reflections in ponds and deep water; wild creatures and plants; these are her subjects. Often, her work is imbued with a wry humour in an animal’s expression or a pun in the title.
She works almost entirely in aquatint, creating tones on the printing plate rather than drawing lines. She uses multiple plates to create darker tones on the plate to contrast with the bright colours of the subjects.
Susie studied at the London College of Printing in the 60’s and worked as a graphic designer until the 80’s, when became a fulltime artist. Her work is in many galleries and she shows frequently at exhibitions, including the RA Summer exhibition.
