‘Early One Morning’ was inspired by the abstract florals of Georgia O”Keeffe, an artist whose work Susie admires greatly. Susie wanted to produce something that was probably more visually accessible and less abstract than much of my work, with clear definition and colours, and on a smaller scale than usual. In addition, the focus is on a single ‘flower’ rather than a bunch of blooms and use brush-strokes and the blending of colours to convey movement within the ‘petals’.

Susie was born in Bedfordshire, England, and even As a very small child, would sit for hours with my wax crayons and paper, making marks, making shapes, making patterns. Susie grew up in a creative family (father was a sculptor and mother painted) and was always encouraged in her pursuits; never felt restricted in what she was doing. Mainly she was having fun.
About seven years or so ago Susie was commissioned to paint a few canvases and was reminded how important painting is to her. I still love colour and get excited at the prospect of a new, blank canvas just waiting to be brought to life. Susie’s work reflects herself in many ways – painting intuitively and from the heart, nearly always choosing the colours first. Inspiration can come from anywhere, at any time; from something she sees or something thought of or even from the lighting of stage or television sets. Often ideas for paintings or colour combinations and shapes come just as she drifting off to sleep.
Susie does not attempt to or want to simply reproduce what exists already, but prefers to interpret what is seenor felt and allows her imagination to lead the way to create something new. Susie resists being pigeonholed by what she does in life, or in what she paints. Susie’s abstract paintings are borne of from imagination, love of colour and passion to create. Now working mainly in acrylics, sometimes oils, occasionally both. Susie aims is to evoke a mood or perhaps prompt a thought that words alone cannot convey.
