Artist Background and Statement

Susan’s creative career began in the graphic design industry in Sydney. She holds a Bachelor of Visual Arts (Graphic Design) from Charles Sturt University – Riverina… but spent more time in the drawing studio than the computer lab.

Susan has exhibited in group and solo exhibitions in the Blue Mountains, Sydney and regional NSW. Her art has been well received with art sales and awards. Her art and commissions are held in collections throughout Australia, United Kingdom, USA and Singapore. She has regularly attended an artist retreat, held every year at Arthur Boyd’s Bundanon Trust in the Shoalhaven NSW, with a group of female artists.

Currently she is also an active member of the organising committee for Braemar Gallery in Springwood, as the marketing coordinator. Braemar Gallery is a valuable community gallery, hosting changing exhibitions each month that showcase works of local and regional artists.

Susan loves the juggle of artist and graphic designer from her home studio as well as mum and taxi driver for her growing family. When she gets a chance she heads for the bush to draw in the National Park.

She is currently painting for her next exhibition in collaboration with Coleen English-Thomas to be held at Braemar House and Gallery, Springwood – date to be advised.
