Looking at organic form and shape, Susan explores these areas using new technology in the new digital age. These peices have a life of their own and also have a story to tell in the form of a narrative. They have both alien and terrestrial elements which are intrinsically part of the image as a whole. These abstract and beautiful images seem strangely familiar, with parts of these images depicting the simple things in life. This is what attracts Susan to them, something which can not be nailed down and is ever changing, evolving and challenging her artistic nature............
Susan passed her Post Graduate MA course in Collaborative Practices in the Creative Industries. This course was situated within the reading of the new cultural economny and the professional working practices of creative practitioners. It was designed to enable creative practitioners to research and develop a practice that is innovative, flexible and tailored to the specific professional and business development of contemporary society.
Susan is an Artist with a wide repertoire of graphic skills in the abstract/surrealistic style. Skills spanning; graphic design; website design, fashion, textiles, fine art, photography, building databases as well as using the computer as a digital laboratory. An extensive library of images is available, commissions have been undertaken to customer’s exact print/web-ready specification, including colour-scheme matching if required.
Susan studied Design in Nottingham on a two year foundation course and then on to Derby University to study Fashion Design, relevant skills were developed to enable her to produce images, movies and workshops which allow people to interact with all forms of her art. The end result is a considered and well thought out process of elimination to produce each image, movie or workshop. The unique culmination of several different techniques and formulae produce an image, movie or workshop that is genuinely original, individual and unique.
Each image is created using a unique orchestration of digital generation and manipulation techniques, developed over 20 years of experience in the medium. Her background includes, fashion, textiles, fine art, graphic design, photography, architectural design, building databases and web-sites, beta testing software - all of which influence the way she produce each of her images
The finished editions of her images are custom printed by her commercial printer using the latest digital technology onto photo-quality Lambda paper, ensuring ultra high definition colour-perfect reproduction, guaranteed colour-fast by the manufacturer. Each limited edition print is professionally printed to your specifications and signed. High-quality, fade-resistant inks are used with a choice of Durst Lambda Photographic Media, such as matte water-colour paper and matte, semi-gloss or gloss photographic paper. Prints are supplied unframed and unmounted, and shipped loosely rolled in rigid cardboard tubing. These limited editions are of exhibition quality, signed by the artist, carry a signed certificate of authentication, numbered, limited to 150 prints and can be shipped worldwide.
Canvas prints with the look of an original oil painting. Can you imagine these spectacular pictures on canvas? Susan will now be able to offer this new and fascinating art media. Whether it be for your home or business interior, your guests and customers will be intrigued by these beautiful looking canvas prints hanging from your walls. The canvas is made of a high quality artist grade cotton and printed with special chrome pigment based inks. This ensures the picture will last for many generations. Your picture will look absolutely stunning and beautiful, with the natural texture of the canvas displaying the effect of an original oil painting.
The images can be sized up to A0 and beyond, retaining their clarity, and at this size are especially attractive to commercial customers as lobby pieces. For the domestic collector, images are usually produced in smaller sizes and in editions of 150 (although individual commissions can be undertaken, along with colour matching if required). Please note the resolution of these images is low (to prevent copying) the original art works are stunning and much, much better in real life!
