Sue’s work is inspired by surfaces, textures, layers and the natural processes that form them within the landscape. Fracture lines, erosion patterns, fossils, leaf skeletons, tree bark, seed structures …

The coastal geology near Sue’s home in Watchet, West Somerset has been a focus for a number of years. More recently she has developed a new body of work concerned with the forest and the natural cycle of renewal. Sue works mainly in collagraph, using found and recycled materials to create richly-textured plates, printed in earthy colours and often employing chine collé to create additional layers.

Sue received a fine art degree in 2004 from the University for the Creative Arts, Farnham. She is a member of Double Elephant Print Workshop and a director of Contains Art CIC.

Highly recommend this exhibition at The National Trust ‘s Killerton House and Estate about the role of Francis Acland in the establishment of the Forestry Commission almost exactly 100 years ago, alongside a fascinating exhibition of textiles made from trees. Inspiration and context for our upcoming SAW exhibition ‘Sylva’ at Halsway Manor. #sawanniversary #saw2019 #somersetartweeks2019 #forestrycommission #somersetartweeksfestival #somersetartweeksfestival2019 ...
