Suzanne Stuart Davies

Artist, Maker
⋆

I am a painter. Observation combines with memory and imagination. Studio work consists of sorting notes, making drawings and studies, keeping ideas/sketchbooks for individual series. Colour and form and surface qualities become important preoccupations at this point. There is always a sequence - one painting in a series leading into another. I trained at Liverpool College of Art. I also have a degree in art history and philosophy.

Current work includes the following series:

  • 'the turning year' - paintings in oil on board, combining still life and landscape
  • 'poetry windows' - meditative watercolour & pencil drawings
  • 'habitat' - oils on canvas focussing on marginal land, remnants protected by legislation
  • 'art and food' - a new series in watercolour and pencil
