This Must Be The Place

“I guess I must be having fun,
feet on the ground
head in the sky
I got plenty of time
I love the passing of time
Never for money
Always for love…” This Must Be The Place, Talking Heads

A full time artist since graduating from Edinburgh College of Art in 1991, Susan’s focus is on painting landscapes combining the use of textiles, flora and fauna, print, watercolour and oil. While oil painting, the experience of many years producing etchings has led Susan to make use of her etching press which takes up a large area of studio space. Susan now paints ontop of old etchings and canvas using scrim and found plant life from Spoon Wood which looks down on her home town of Peebles, capturing the evening light. Printing with thread and scrim give interesting effects, layering printed leaves, ferns , flowers and grasses in different colours to give interest and depth to the paintings, with an ethereal quality. This is a very enjoyable process making every painting unique.
