Over recent years I have been developing skills in a variety of media. I particularly enjoy experimenting in mixed media to create textural qualities.

My inspiration lies largely within the natural world of trees, flowers and landscapes which I interpret mostly in acrylic paint and painted collages. I sometimes venture into textiles and I enjoy combining printmaking with painting.

    This is really beautiful Susan! I love the “layered” effect amd also the semi abstract approach! Well done!

  • Thankyou,Mrswillow, I actually printed with lilies but prepared the background with a large abstract of a lily in inks on tissue paper collage

    How beautiful and dreamy. :)

  • Thankyou, lacitrouille, I was trying to go from light to dark but it was hard to get the differential so I had to go back to light and achieved a different outcome!

    This is so beautiful Susan…makes me want to get of the computer and paint in real media again…need another 24 hours in the day though…lol

  • Thankyou, Patricia. I’m really into layering in imagery but it is very challenging manually. I’m looking forward to achieving it at the click of a button!! (tongue in cheek!)
