About Susan

Susan is a Glasgow based artist, born and brought up in Stirling. She initially studied Landscape Architecture at Edinburgh College of Art, and she worked in that field for several years before taking time out to raise her family. During this period Susan developed her love of drawing and painting and she now exhibits throughout Scotland. 


Susan works mainly in oils and mixed media and her paintings feature East and West Coast fishing villages and the bustling cities of Edinburgh and Glasgow. Her roots in architecture are never far away and she is continually inspired by the formal properties of Edinburgh architecture and the Old Town’s particular charm Her compositions convey both the historic nature of the city, and its character today, with busy streets and brightly painted shop fronts.
