SUE HOWELLS S.W.A. A.R.B.S.A

BORN IN 1948, SUE HAS SPENT 30 YEARS BECOMING AN OVERNIGHT SUCCESS.

IF YOU HAVE WATCHED LITTLE BRITAIN,EASTENDERS,MY FAMILY,VICAR OF DIBLEY,DEMONS,OR SEEN THE HELEN MIRREN FILM "THE QUEEN" EVENING DINNERS AND NUMEROUS ADVERTS, YOU WOULD HAVE SEEN A WORK BY SUE.

IT ALL STARTED IN 1983 WHEN SHE TOOK HER YOUNGEST DAUGHTER TO A CRECHE AT THE LOCAL EDUCATION CENTRE. THERE WaS SO MUCH NOISE FROM THE CRECHE SHE WENT TO THE FARTHEST POINT AND STUMBLED UPON AN ART CLASS. 2 LESSONS LATER SHE REALISED THIS IS WHAT SHE WANTED AND NEVER WENT BACK.

BEING A BUSY PERSON BY NATURE SUE LIKES TO PAINT IN A MEDIUM THAT IS QUICK,ENABLING A WORK TO BE FINISHED IN ONE SESSION. THE QUICKNESS OF STROKES ALMOST LET THE PICTURES PAINT THEMSELVES,ONE STROKE PROMPTING THE NEXT.

SHE WORKS IN THE CONVERTED CELLAR IN HER BIRMINGHAM HOME,AND LIKE ONE OF HER INFLUENCES,L S LAWRY, SHE HAS NO IDEA OF WEATHER AND THERE ARE NO DISTRACTIONS, SO SHE CAN DISTANCE HERSELF FROMN HER SURROUNDINGS AND LET HER IMAGINATION DO THE WORK.

IN 2008 SHE WAS VOTED THE BEST SELLING LIVING ARTIST IN THE U.K BY THE FINE ART TRADE GUILD OF GREAT BRITAIN .
