Suzy is passionate about the landscape that has been the backdrop to her fortunate life. Her journey with the Australian outback has been the inspiration for the work she creates. She holds a strong belief that the natural environment has much to offer us as we go about our fast-paced life.
Suzy has focused her art practice on oil painting for close to 20 years, culminating in 12 successful exhibitions. Her work is held in collections through-out the country and overseas.
Teaching both adults and children how to paint with oil paints has been extremely satisfying. Over 8 years she has witness the joy, stress relief, and the sense of achievement experienced by her students in the act of mark making to create a visually pleasing piece of art. She has also guided students toward the path of their own art business through the joy of creating.
Suzy works and teaches out of her Broome based Studio Gallery in the far North of Western Australia.
