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 produce her own kiln-fired miniature paintings. With a love of learning, she self-taught and moved into watercolour, charcoal and more recently, printmaking.
Susan's work reflects a mood or a moment, using vibrant colour, movement or drama. Often portraying a narrative, her work give a suggestion of freedom of spirit and escape.
She enjoys drifting into clouds, watching the birds that own them, and reading about lives lived under them. 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.
Susan lives within the heart of the glassmaking town of Stourbridge, England, and works from her studio at home.
She is Craftsman of the Guild of Enamellers, with highlights including The Royal Academy Summer Exhibition, The Royal Society of Painter-Printmakers 'The Masters-Relief', The Royal Society of Miniature Painter 2019, and The Royal Birmingham Society of Artists 2020.
