Susan's work is a response to the lights and colours of Nature. She feels its form, the wildlife it contains, and invites the viewer to step in and enjoy. Her work reflects a mood or a moment, using vibrant colour, movement and drama. Often portraying a narrative, her work gives a suggestion of freedom of spirit and escape, with frequent touches towards her passion for history.
Inspired by wildlife, Susan's recent work highlights her love of birds and the joy observing their daily lives can bring.
A vitreous enamel miniaturist, Susan worked as a premier artist for over 25 years at Halcyon Days Enamels Ltd., hand-painting Georgian inspired vitreous enamels for clients worldwide, including Japanese and English royalty.
Following redundancy and further independent training, Susan began to create kiln-fired vitreous enamel miniature paintings. Self-taught, she progressed into watercolour and charcoal, and has been printmaking for the last two years.
Susan lives within the heart of the glassmaking town of Stourbridge, England, and works from her studio at home.
