After gaining her B.A. In art at Leicester De Montfort Univercity
Sue worked in various fields for several years, always maintaining
Her interest in Art, history of art and various crafts.
She then saw an advert by a small private school for an art teacher,
Applied got the job, and was so inspired by the work of her students
that the interest in producing works of art herself was rekindled.
In 1997 Sue and her husband Cliff took early retirement and moved
To the beautiful ,but barren Island of Fuerteventura in the Canary
Islands. Inspired by the shapes and colours of the island, Sue
Decided to set up her own studio to produce paintings and pottery,
Unfortunatly the pottey has been put on hold owing to long term
She has developed a unique personal style which blends her love
of the island, its flora a nd fauna, with her interest in art deco and
Also in Aboriginal art, which she experienced at the Pitt-Rivers
gallery in Oxford on several visits with her GCSE pupils.
In 2012 Sue was awarded her Artisania in silk painting and ceramics
By the council of Furteventura.
