Sue studied Fine Art with James Hockey at The West Surrey College of Art (now The Surrey Institute of Art and Design) and then worked for 10 years in a Private Studio with the Hackney family in Surrey.

Sue is a member of the Societee de Pastelistes de France and has worked in Paris as well as exhibiting regularly there. The body language of her models plays an important part in her figurative paintings and she is currently involved in a series of studies including Jazz and dance. On her visits to Spain she enjoys the local Flamenco shows and much of her work is centred around this most passionate of dances. Visits to The Marinsky Theatre in St.Petersberg have provided the ideal backdrop for her great interest in all things theatrical.
