Welcome to my art website

Born in Lincolnshire, Susan moved up to Dalbeattie, South West Scotland at the age of 10. After leaving  High School at 16 she went straight to Carlisle Art College.  After 4 years at Carlisle Susan graduated in Textile Design.

After a few years working in none inspiring jobs Susan went back to college in Dumfries, and after 2 years graduated in Business Studies with Tourism.

Susan then worked in an office environment for over 15 years, but she always had a need to create things. After a chance viewing on YouTube of some coloured pencil artists and a win on the 2017 Grand National, where she eventually decided to go for it and use the money to buy a full set of artist quality coloured pencils. Susan rekindled her passion for Art and especially coloured pencils, she has never looked back since, and has even managed to bag a few International awards.
