Describe what you call yourself/your practice?: 

Statement describing the artist
Susan’s inherent, and distinctive colourist palette and her intuitive selective response to the motif underpin the integrity of her painting which is now reaching it’s full maturity.
Painting landscapes, portraits or drawing, Susan prefers to work on location or directly from the motif.
Her work is instantly recognised for it’s life affirming and exhilaratingly colourful gestural brushwork.
Interlocking the illusion of the image with the materiality of the paint, she explores the relationship
between surface and depth, using the full range of painting techniques.
Susan’s painterly approach can be described as Expressive Figurative, where the subject is implied and interpreted rather than described, the poetry of the subject rather than the prose.
Underlying all her work is a thorough knowledge of draughtsmanship and composition.
