Susan is a contemporary landscape artist working in mixed media. She lives and works on the Isle of Skye. Since leaving Glasgow School of Art in 1988, where she studied Embroidered and Woven Textiles, Susan has portrayed the rich layers of colours and textured surfaces found in the ever-changing Scottish landscape through weave and mixed media. Her past focus on the patterns and textures of the Moorfoots in the Borders has progressed onto more expressionistic land- and sea- scapes inspired by her surroundings on Skye. Susan also teaches at the West Highland College.
“I become fascinated by one part of the land or sea, continuously sketching and painting in one area in different seasons and weathers, abstracting the patterns, colours and textures."
