Maker's bio

I am a professional artist, specialising in animals and nature subjects. I have been offering workshops and demonstrations for 18 months, and they have been very popular. It is important to me that each person who comes to one of my courses feels comfortable and can work at their own pace. The focus is on building up your techniques to allow you to really loosen up and paint with confidence. I love hearing from my students who are happily taking their painting forward following a workshop and getting great results too. As an artist, I work in oils, acrylics and mixed media. My use of colour can be surprising and quite bright! My rainbow cow painting is on the cover of Artists and Illustrators' March 2023 edition.

Charmain reviewed: 'Bluebell Woods' Acrylic Painting Workshop with Sue Gardner

"Throughly enjoyed my Highland Cow Painting day with Sue. I haven’t painted before and was amazed at the result. Sue guided us step by step through the process whilst allowing for and encouraging our individual style. We had lots of time, it was very relaxed, with a superb lunch and gorgeous homemade cake. It was a really lovely day out and a treat not to have to clock watch but just get lost in the process. I’d highly recommend it, even if you haven’t painted before. I thought it was excellent value for money. "

" What a lovely review Charmain, I'm delighted, thank you so much 🤗"

Patricia Dimberline reviewed: 'Bluebell Woods' Acrylic Painting Workshop with Sue Gardner

"Absolutely fabulous. Sue, thank you. You teach in an easy way for numpties like me to understand. You made the course so easy, especially doing the cow's nose and eye. I have never painted an animal and at least it does look like one, even though perhaps a bit psychedelic 😂🤣. It was a great day 5/2/2023, today, lovely lunch and cake was had by all. Plenty of drinks, no not gin, but everyone’s cows were marvellous. I shall definitely look for another of Sue's courses to attend."

Sue Gardner Studio responded:

" Thank you very much Tricia for leaving such a lovely review! It was a pleasure to meet you and you painted a terrific 'coo', tiptop-full of character. Glad you had a nice day, I'll be delighted to have you along again in the future 🙂"

SUE reviewed: Woodland birds two day workshop - Painting the birds of the British National Forest

"A fantastic workshop run by a fantastic artist. Sue was an inspiration to me, having shown the group how to create stunning paintings in acrylics in her own style. I had never used this medium before and with Sue's guidance and examples , I was able to complete three paintings in my own style. It was such a pleasure working in a friendly environment with a wonderful group of people. I gained confidence as the weekend progressed. I will certainly be booking onto Sue's other courses in the future. "

Sue Gardner Studio responded:

" Thanks ever so much Sue, for taking the time to leave such a kind review. You were a pleasure to have on the workshop and you are a very talented artist! I'm glad you enjoyed the weekend, and I look forward to seeing you again."
