Susan was born in Cardiff and started painting there in 1992 and continued in Hampshire from 1994 until 2000. In this period she painted largely in watercolour, painting flowers, some portraits and landscapes and followed a number of local college courses and art society workshops, and was accepted into Chandlers Ford Art Society but relocated to Wales before taking up the membership.
From 2000 onwards Susan returned to Wales and now lives on a farm near Llandovery and over this period has followed a number of courses with Carmarthenshire County Council and Aberystwyth University as well as Art Society workshops.
Her keen interests in recent times have concentrated on watercolour abstracts and semi-abstracts, enjoying the freedom of expression and imagination the form offers. Susan's work has a contemporary feel with a rich colour palette and much for the viewer to explore.
