Susan’s studio is idyllically situated in the Brookton Valley, Roleystone.  Surrounding hills, bush and river are a constant source of inspiration.  Local vineyards and orchards often finding their way into the many “Sculptural Landscape Series” paintings, created in various mediums.

Having had a life long involvement in the arts, Susan’s work has grown, most notably in the transition from Representational to Abstract Expressionism. Focusing on the emotional experience of the subject and expressing this using the reservoir of knowledge acquired over many years.
