Welcome to my art website

Susan is a professional artist/illustrator originally from Lincolnshire but is now based in the southwest of Scotland. She studied at Carlisle Art College for four years in the 80’s gaining a National Diploma in Applied Design and a Higher National Diploma in Design & Textiles. When fortuitous twist of fate happened in 2017, stumbling upon other coloured pencil artists on YouTube she was enthralled by the medium's vibrant possibilities which sparked a new chapter in Susan's artistic narrative. She has pursued her own creative practice ever since.

In the last four years she has entered many Juried in exhibitions both physical and online and has received many awards.
