Susan enjoys many aspects of art making and creativity.

 

Her artistic interests from a young age were with music and singing. She briefly attended the Melba Conservatorium and later gained a Grad Dip in Music Ed. at the then Ballarat University in 1994 and became a Music Specialist in schools.

 

As a member of the Ballarat Society of Artists, Susan values the many opportunities to share and create with others who enjoy a common interest in art.

Susan began printmaking while studying a teaching degree at ACU 2004–2007. She completed many other music units but found that she was drawn to the Visual Arts. This gave her the grounding to be an Art Specialist and explore her creativity in a new way, through primary teaching and in her own practice. A few years later, she attended a number of night classes at Federation University and an engraving class with David Frazer. Susan has completed art units online, including printmaking, through OUA with Curtin University.

In her own art’s practice, printmaking is dominant and she enjoys all types of printmaking processes, lino print, drypoint, monoprint and engraving being favourites.

 

Never afraid to try new ventures and keen to encourage printmaking to all ages, Susan now runs private printmaking classes and workshops for schools and small groups. During the warmer months, she has a stall at Castlemaine Artists market. She sells privately and promotes printmaking where-ever possible.

Susan has participated in a number of exhibitions and is looking forward to the new opportunities with her recent acceptance into the Goldfields Printmakers group.
