Susan studied Illustration at Cambridge School of Art, and returned to study for an MA in Children’s Book Illustration in 2001. In 2000 Susan studied lithography with Stanley Jones MBE at the Curwen Print Study Centre.
Susan worked as Lead Tutor for the Curwen Print Study Centre, an educational charity for 17 years, working with artists and students of all ages, teaching diverse print techniques, providing varied challenges, and a rewarding and valuable experience.
Susan developed the Curwen Print Study Centre ‘Certificate in Printmaking Skills’ and many of the workshops and courses at the Study Centre. Working at the Study Centre gave Susan the opportunity to work with many artists, including Stanley Jones MBE, David Ferry, Chloe Cheese and Penny Brewill. As a consultant Susan developed many printmaking workshops tailored for specific briefs such as the British Museum Revolutions on Paper, John Piper at Blenheim Palace, or the Fry Gallery Edward Bawden exhibition 2015 and many more. Susan is currently delivering printmaking workshops at the ACE Foundation Stapleford Granary, Gainsborough House Sudbury, working on the Cambridge Original Biennale, running workshops from her studio and developing her own work.
