About Sue

Bio: Born in Yorkshire and raised in Newcastle upon Tyne, where I lived until 2001. I trained at Newcastle Polytechnic in Creative Arts and followed up with a Masters Degree at Durham University.

As a visual artist I have pursued my career in the Arts through a many-and-varied approach. Originally a ceramicist, I ran a studio at Cluny Warehouse in Byker making fine art sculpture and hand-built domestic ware. At that time I also worked as a creative therapist, using clay as my chosen medium, enabling my clients to explore and develop themselves through creative work.

Since giving up 3D work in the mid-nineties I have returned to painting and it’s many attendant 2D art forms - pastel, acrylic, watercolour, photography, collage and lino printing.

I welcome commissions whatever the format. There is something very appealing to me about collaboration - putting my interpretation into an idea and enabling someone to see their mind’s eye image brought to form. You can use the link on this website to contact me.
