Based in rural Perthshire, in the Carse of Gowrie, Susan’s paintings reflect the surroundings in which she lives, in particular the characters of the many different varieties of sheep found on farms in this area. She particularly enjoys capturing their unique characters, using detail, manipulating the paint to achieve each ‘portrait’.
