Meet the Artist
My name is Sue and I was born and raised in the UK, I emigrated from Liverpool to Western Australia in 2006 with my husband Andy and two children Tom and Emma. Art has been my whole life and for as long as I can remember, I have been creating art in one form or another.
What inspires your art?
I am fascinated with nature, how water flows, how fire moves and the patterns they create. Getting in touch with nature sparks my creativity.
What is your earliest memory of wanting to create art?
My first memory comes from when I was in Primary School, the class was watching a documentary of the wildlife in Africa and afterwards we were asked to draw our favourite animal. I chose to draw an elephant and all my classmates were impressed with my effort, so much so, from that day forward, I knew I wanted to be an artist when ‘I grew up’.
What would you be doing if you weren't making art?
Ooh, I would be travelling around the world and getting more in touch with nature. I am blessed that we decided to fly to the other side of the world and start a new life in Australia. The wildlife here, gives me plenty of inspiration to get creative.
What made you choose the mediums you're using now?
I love to use resin as it resembles glass, adding texture and elements into the resin makes it take on a whole new form. It allows me to explore movement and depth in my pieces and they make a dramatic statement on anybody’s wall.
What do you want for yourself as an artist?
That’s a hard question. Ideally, I would love to earn enough money from my art to go travelling. Well who wouldn’t want to earn money from what they enjoy?
What do you want for your collectors?
For me, I would like my collectors to see the beauty in resin, for it to take them to another place of tranquility and peace.
What is your biggest obstacle in making art?
For me the biggest thing is making enough money to continue with my love of creating.
