She has 18 years experience as lead tutor and studio manager at the Curwen Print Study Centre. 
 
Sue’s abstract prints and paintings draw on the landscape, environment, chaos and control for inspiration.  Her monotypes are constructed of multiple layers and varying printmaking techniques over long periods of time.  They are visual diaries documenting personal journeys, balancing  the contrast of the manmade and organic and the painterly mark to the structured line.  Currently Sue is experimenting with rust and drypoint printing using recycled packaging and found metal objects.  She deconstructs, reconstructs and combines these manmade objects giving them new  purpose through print bringing them together to create undiscovered abstract  landscapes. Sue also works with relief printmaking, collagraphs, wood engraving, screen, photopolymer and etching.
 
In her paintings Sue works with mixed media such as acrylics, graphite, oil bars, collage etc.  She builds the image over time responding to the previous layer combining spontaneity and unconscious line with balance and control.  Working towards a quality that is both delicate and ethereal in the finished image, appearing almost whisked together out of the air.  Sue's paintings and prints are infused with a sense of mystery, drama, colour and space to create new emotional landscapes.  She exhibits with Church Street Gallery, Saffron Walden and Cambridge Contemporary Art, Cambridge.
