Sue paints pictures of everyday folk. Taking a lighter look at life, capturing our warmth and humanity. The aim is, you’ll recognise something in the image, like it's a reflection of someone you know, or a certain behaviour - evoking a sense of the familiar.
Having lived a life, and raised her family, Sue took up painting after an illness, and was lucky enough to find an Art tutor that helped her find her ‘thing’. The majority of her work is in oil and acrylics. She starts by drawing with paint, the lines forming part of the finished piece. With water based media, there is no initial drawing - instead she takes a deep breath and goes straight into the masses with a loaded brush. It’s very zen – hence it doesn’t happen often! The focus of all her work being on the essence of the image, rather than the finer detail. All the moments captured are of people Sue has seen whilst out and about doing her favourite thing – people watching, with sketchbook & camera in hand.
