Coming soon 


Since leaving Glasgow School of Art in 1988, where she studied Embroidered and Woven Textiles, Susan has portrayed the rich layers of colours and textured surfaces found in the ever changing Scottish landscape through weave and mixed media.

Her past focus on the patterns and textures of the Moorfoots in the Borders whilst living in Edinburgh has progressed onto more expressionistic land and seascape studies inspired by her  surroundings on the Isle of Skye. She now teaches on the Isle of Skye and works in her studio making frequent visits to her favourite beaches and mountains for painting in the outdoors and developing work in her studio.

‘I become fascinated by one part of the land or sea, continuously sketching and painting the one area in different seasons and weathers,  abstracting the patterns, colours and textures.’

She has recently joined the newly formed Bridge Art Collective which is a group of 10 practising local artists’ from the Highlands –  Isle of Skye, Locahalsh and Wester-Ross. Check out their facebook page – The Bridge Art Collective
