She has studied Interior Design with the OCA, Botanical Painting, Pottery, Silk Painting, Portraiture and, at the National Design Academy, Mural Design and Professional Paint Finishes.

For many years Sue worked on commission portraits and murals, loving designing a finished product for a client and being able to see their expression when they view their work for the first time and know she has made something unique and beautiful that they will treasure for many years to come.

Taking this love of design forward, over the last 12 years, Sue has also been designing and implementing a range of art classes and creative workshops, both for adults and children. These include pencil drawing, silk painting, acrylics, soft pastels and watercolour.
