‘I discovered the nostalgia and heritage of the ‘shop house’ whilst exhibiting in Singapore. The oriental and exotic, the repetition, colour and pattern of the tiles and decorative features an instant attraction. An irresistible challenge to capture the history, weatherworn texture and residue of time applying painting techniques used to create my ‘beach house’ works. The same story crossing borders and cultures underpinned by concern for conservation, sustainable living and repurposing of the existing.’ Created in 2019, acrylic and oil on canvas, 76cm x 76cm (30" x 30")

Susan’s works are contemporary and figurative with subtle abstract elements and surprises, underpinned by her concern for the environment, sustainable living and the value of a more simple life.

Acrylic and oil, patterned, layered and rubbed back allowing the underlying to emerge, achieving an organic quality, echoing transience, evoking nostalgia and inviting appreciation for the often taken for granted.

Exhibited in solo and selected shows since 1998 and since 2012 internationally, including the New York Chelsea International Art Competition, in Hong Kong, Istanbul, California and Singapore and most recently the Rise Art Prize ‘Global Artist of the Year’ award in London.

In 2016 by invitation Susan was artist-in residence at One & Only Reethi Rah, Maldives.

Creating from her Noosa Heads studio Susan’s works are exhibited, selected and collected nationally and internationally.
