Susannah is a professional artist living close to the North Somerset coast.
Her inspiration is her local landscape…. the rocks, the pebbles and the geological features, as well as the ever-changing woodland close to her home.
Using natural earth, mineral and botanical pigments that, as much as she can, she forages for or grows, Susannah aims to represent our timeless and precious world.
Becoming a more ecologically aware artist, using sustainable materials as much as she can, has become a very important part of her practice.
She has recently started to work on Ash panels made especially for her at Westonbirt Arboretum; giving the ash trees that have been sadly felled a new lease of life.
In this exhibition at Studio3, Susannah is particularly focused on the Clevedon shoreline. All her new pebble paintings are inspired by both Clevedon beach and Ladye Bay; both veritable treasure troves of colour and texture. She honors both the humble pebble and her richly coloured earth pigments.
For Susannah working mindfully and often intuitively allows for a deeper connection to the land. Walking, observing, gathering earth, grinding earth, making paint and then painting, inspired by that same landscape, is a grounding, cyclical and meditative process.
