About Me & General Info.


Suzanne graduated from The University of Ulster in 2004 with a BA (Hons) in Fine & Applied Art.

She started painting full time just under 2 years ago, and has rapidly garnered attention in the short 18 months since moving to the South coast of 'sunny' England.

She has recently featured in: Solent Life Magazine, The Portsmouth News ( weekend edtion), Fareham Arts Trail, Lee on Solent Arts Festival and her work is now on permanent display at the venue: Leon's Restaurant on The Waterfront in Lee on Solent.


Her paintings are predominantly in oils.

She explains it thus: "Colour is vital in my work and is one of my defining elements. I have developed a gestural vocabulary which is exclusively mine. When I embark on a new abstract painting for instance, I generally only have a vague idea of what I want to convey, but things progress and I react. If I get excited by it, I'm confident that I'm on the right track."
