Sue paints pictures of everyday folk. Taking a lighter look at life, capturing our warmth and humanity. The aim being that you’ll recognise something in the image, like it's a reflection of someone you know, or a type of person - evoking a sense of the familiar.
The majority of her work is in oil, with just occasional forays into water based media. In oils Sue starts by drawing with paint, the lines forming part of the finished piece. The same with water based media, there is no initial drawing - rather Sue says she takes a deep breath and goes straight into the masses with a loaded brush. The focus being on the essence of the image, rather than the finer detail. All the moments captured are of people Sue has seen on home turf, or further afield on her travels.
