Susan began painting about ten years ago, after taking very early retirement from a career in accountancy.
Susan likes to produce works in bright cheerful colours, mainly using acrylic gouache paint on watercolour paper. She also paint ‘digitally’ using a stylus and tablet.
In 2017 Susan was short-listed for the Artist and Illustrator Magazine ‘Artist of the Year’ Competition and exhibited at The Mall Galleries in London.
Most years Susan have been successful in gaining entry to the Derbyshire Open Art Exhibition and have won the Derbyshire County Council Medal and a Commendation medal. In May/June she can sometimes be seen out and about in Buxton, painting for the Buxton Spa Prize.
Susan is proud to be a member of the ‘High Peak Artists’ with a permanent display at The Gallery in the Gardens, Buxton, and of ‘The Gallery’ in New Mills
