Suzy Fasht was born in London in 1964, she studied BA (hons) Fine Art - painting at Wimbledon School of Art where she was tutored by Prunella Clough.  This was followed by Post-graduate study in the painting school at The Royal Academy Schools, tutored by Norman Adams RA and Timothy Hyman RA.  

In 2005 she moved to Devon with her young family and currently works and teaches from her studio on the edge of Dartmoor.

Inspiration comes from the seasonal plants and landscape around her area of rural Devon. Working in oils, watercolour or egg tempera, she aims to convey her appreciation for the natural world together with a consideration of the design elements for each painting.

In 2018 Suzy was elected as an Associate member of the Royal Watercolour Society based at Bankside Gallery, London, where her work is regularly on show. Her paintings have been in exhibitions around the UK including the Royal Academy Summer exhibitions, the Sunday Times Watercolour competition and recently was shortlisted for the Lyn Painter Stainers prize.
