Suzanne Stuart Davies

Artist, Maker

I am a painter. Connecting with place, land and nature slowly. Involvement with specific ideas might send me to a particular location where I walk - with camera, sketch books and notebooks - at all times of the year. Sometimes images & ideas remain insistent. Observation combines with memory and imagination. Studio work consists of sorting notes, making drawings and studies. 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. read full statement
