It was while studying for a BA(hons) at Manchester Polytechnic that Susan was introduced to the exciting mediums of etching and lithography and the transformative processes of printmaking.
In 1977 she moved to London. She did a further printmaking course at Falmouth with Maggie Jennings and later studied with master etcher Frank Connolly at the City Lit.
She started exhibiting her prints and subsequently had an etching selected for the Royal Society of British Artists Annual Exhibition at the Mall Galleries in 1993.
In 1997 paintings were selected for ‘new labour’, an exhibition curated by Peter Kennard, at Riverside Studios, London W6, with The Riverside Artists Group.
From 1997-2000 she studied MA Fine Art printmaking at Wimbledon School of Art. Exhibited at the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition in 2002, 2004 and 2011.
Work is typically bold dramatic woodcuts of architecture and landscapes.
