Susan is known for her images which celebrate the mountain environment. Her work expresses the human connection with landscape, especially wild places. It is important for her to draw and paint in the often remote locations which inspire her.
“The acts of walking and drawing, paying attention, become meditations on the landscape, lifting me out of time”. Using printmaking processes, particularly etching and monotype, Susan transforms and translates her drawings into images which evoke a strong sense of place and recall the experience of being there in all weathers.
Susan is a professional painter and printmaker, working from her studio in Northumberland. She is a member of Northern Print, Newcastle. She is also a mountaineer and climber. Whenever she can she travels to the mountain areas of the UK, Europe and, on several occasions, the Himalaya.
