Sue originally trained as a  technical illustrator in the aircraft industry in Cheltenham.


For many years her preferred medium has been watercolour but she now also works in acrylics, oils and pastels.

Her work also includes drypoint etching and lino and wood cuts which she  prints herself using oil based printing inks.


Sue enjoys wood carving-mostly birds and other wildlife using a variety of wood ,either painting with acrylic paints or leaving the wood in it's natural state.


Her inspiration comes mainly from locations she has visited when pursuing her favourite recreational  pastimes of hill walking and cycling both in the UK and overseas in South East Asia and Spain.
