The subject matter and it’s context that Sue is attracted to is frequently subconscious. It often exists in a Liminal space.

Sue looks for beauty but often find it glowing in the dark or uneasy.Actual figures are rare in her paintings, perhaps a silhouette on a tent wall. She prefers to use objects that infer a human presence or absence.

She says that being mixed race was probably part, but not all of feeling herself to be occupying an ‘in-between’ place growing up. Sue's subject matter reflects the spaces between the city where she currently lives and nature that she has a longing to return to.  Small man made objects taking a space and resonating amongst the elemental.
