Suzanne Stuart Davies sketchbooks in studio

I am a painter – using traditional materials – sketch/notebooks, studies, photographs, collage/montage, oil on canvas/board. Ideas come from explorations of place – landscape/land use.  

I also knit. In the winter, when the light is poor for a painter in the north, I like the colours and the feeling of thread round fingers. Themes for hand-knitting also come from landscape and are sometimes linked to other work.

I studied painting & drawing at Liverpool College of Art and subsequently qualified as a teacher. I also have a degree in Philosophy and History of Art from the Open University.

After living in Scotland for twenty years, where I took part in 'Spring Fling' Studio Trail and set up artist led galleries, I returned to Cumbria in March 2017.
