Sue is a printmaker, using collagraph or etched plates, sometimes layered and combined with monotype and chine colle.
The work is concerned with textures and surfaces and draws inspiration from the lines and patterns found in landscape and nature, telling stories of formation, growth, erosion and decay. Sue has developed a range of collagraph techniques that allow her to use found and recycled materials to create richly-textured, limited edition prints, hand printed on an etching press.
Sue received a fine art degree in 2004 from the University for the Creative Arts at Farnham. Since graduating she has combined development of a printmaking practice with teaching in adult education and a career in arts and community administration. After a number of years living in London Sue returned to Somerset (where she was born and grew up) in 2011 and now lives in Watchet. Sue is a Director of Contains Art CIC and a member of Somerset Printmakers and Double Elephant Print Studio.
