Sue says, “I’m currently based in Forest Lake, Brisbane where I have lived for the past 24 years. My art is informed by my natural surroundings. I have been inspired by nature my entire life. As a child I would observe with great curiosity and wonder the beauty and intricacy of plants, flowers and wildlife, embracing the dance of light upon petals and leaves.
I often enjoy exploring my neighbourhood and taking photos for my catalogue of inspiration and reference. I then use these snapshots of time in my studio where my concepts come to life through paint and pigment. I’m primarily a 2D visual artist painting in acrylic, oils or soft pastels depending on my subject choice.
Additionally, I’m also a printmaker, using lino-printing and mono printing with natural found materials along with freeform crochet and terracotta pot painting”.
