The second of eight children, Sue was born to parents that were both creative, especially her mother, who was an accomplished portrait painter and sculptor. Her dad introduced them to the great outdoors and this is where her love of wildlife and nature was born.
Sue draws her inspiration from all creation. The diverse characteristics of nature; flora and fauna, and the feeling of satisfaction that she gets from creating these stories on a surface using a handful of tools drive her.
Working mostly in realism and using oils, Sue hopes to draw the viewer into her world to impart to the onlooker the beauty of the created world of wildlife and of human beings. She would like to inspire humankind to be aware of the beauty and that we as the 'keepers' of this planet have the responsibility to safe it for future generations.
Sue was born in 1949 in Mutare, Zimbabwe and studied graphic art at the Bulawayo Art School, Zimbabwe. She is well travelled and has had stays in Zimbabwe, Mozambique, Lesotho and South Africa.
When asked about her undeniable talent and what is behind it, Sue simply answers; ‘It is in my blood!’
