Sue Jones studied Illustration at Cambridge School of Art, and returned to study for an MA in Children’s Book Illustration in 2001. In 2000 Sue studied lithography with Stanley Jones MBE at the Curwen Print Study Centre.
Sue worked as Lead Tutor for the Curwen Print Study Centre, an educational charity for 17 years, working with artists and students of all ages, teaching diverse print techniques, providing varied challenges, and a rewarding and valuable experience. She developed the Curwen Print Study Centre ‘Certificate in Printmaking Skills’ and many of the workshops and courses at the Study Centre. Working at the Study Centre gave Sue the opportunity to work with many artists, including Stanley Jones MBE, David Ferry, Chloe Cheese and Penny Brewill. As a consultant Sue developed many printmaking workshops tailored for specific briefs such as the British Museum Revolutions on Paper, John Piper at Blenheim Palace, or the Fry Gallery Edward Bawden exhibition 2015 and many more.
As well as teaching Sue is an active printmaker herself, her paintings and abstract prints draw on the landscape for inspiration, to create atmosphere, drama and emotion. Creating personal landscapes infused with a sense of mystery, vitality, colour and space. The prints are on the whole Monoprints or Monotypes, each unique like a painting, they evolve over time, sometimes printed direct from the landscape, found objects, and ephemera, reflecting the beauty and contrast of both the natural and the manmade.
