Susan is an award winning international artist. She has an MA in Fine Art and a PhD in Archaeology from University College London, with work published on art from the prehistoric Aegean.

She has shown at many national and international exhibitions, including at the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition, The Mall Galleries, The Bankside Gallery and the Westminster Gallery in London.

She has a particular interest in animal subjects and her work is held in collections at home and abroad.

She will shortly be publishing her book Drawn to Animals, an artist’s encounters, which is a collection of her drawings, watercolours, etchings and sketchbook studies from observations of a wide range of animals both wild and domestic. It reflects an artistic journey that has taken her across many continents to observe animals first-hand. Zoological parks and animal sanctuaries were also sometimes visited for closer encounters. In addition, drawings have been made of domestic and farm animals she came across. Over a 100 of her drawings, watercolours, etchings and sketches are included, with more than 60 illustrations in colour. Fascinating facts about each animal illustrated are included. It will be of interest to anyone who enjoys both animals and art.
