Suzy was born in London in 1964 and studied at the Royal Academy Schools and Wimbledon College of Art. She has lived in South Devon for many years from where she paints and teaches part time.

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. 

Suzy’s paintings are a response to 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. 

 

She is a former student of Norman Adams RA, Timothy Hyman RA and Prunella Clough.  The painting studio is on the edge of Dartmoor at Black Barns Devon and visitors are welcome by appointment.
