Sue was born in the South West of England, and from a young age spent many hours drawing, with art a great interest during her school years.
After leaving school Sue pursued a career in cartography, working in the fields of aerial mapping and landscape architecture.

Sue migrated to Australia in 1982, where her cartographic career continued until leaving the workforce to start a family in 1989. During this time she returned to study horticulture, which in turn re-kindled her interest in art, in particular botanical art.

With a desire to broaden her horizons, Sue attended various courses and workshops with a variety of artists such as Joseph Zbukvic, Amanda Hyatt, Ross Paterson and Sally Douglas, and although horticultural interests continued, artistic pursuits began to take centre stage.

Watercolour is Sue’s medium of choice and although botanical art was the first step in this medium, this was soon expanded to enjoy the challenge of other subject matter, in particular capturing water and its reflections, and the sense of atmosphere and drama that changing light can impact on a landscape or subject.

Since her first small exhibition at a local cafe, Sue has gone on to achieve recognition at the following exhibitions:
