Sue is a self-taught artist born and raised in Bedford, England UK. She set up and ran The Kiln paint your own pottery studio in Bedford before selling the business five years ago to concentrate on her art career.

This has paid dividends as she reached the semi-finals of a Saatchi Art Showdown competition in May 2013. Following this Sue was invited to take part in an exhibition in Berlin as part of the city’s art fair week.

Last December she was one of only five artists from Great Britain invited to take part in the Lights In The Winter exhibition at La Galleria Pall Mall, in London’s west end, which also featured a total of 30 artists from around the world.

Invitations quickly followed to exhibit in Monaco, Vienna and Nice.

Recent exhibitions have take place at the C03 Gallery, Colchester, England and the Breathe exhibition at The Electricians Shop, Canary Wharf, London. Sue has been approached by Harvey Nichols to display at their Fifth Floor Restaurant in the flagship store in Knightsbridge, London and will also be taking part in the Edinburgh Art Fair in November 2014.
