Sue has had a passion for art from a young age, as a child, she decorated her own bedroom with murals. Sue had only painted as a hobby but in 2002 decided to go to college to study Fine Art, this inspired her to give up her job to pursue a career in art. She started her own business painting murals but also developed her iconic portrait ideas on canvas using her own contemporary style taking inspiration from Warhol and Hockney. Her first portrait was of Johnny Depp and an off chance visit to the local gallery resulted in her first exhibition in her home town of Tamworth, Staffordshire, and has since exhibited in galleries across the Midlands and London. Sue has always had a passion for working with charities and finding new ways to raise money. A chance to meet rock legend Robert Plant was one such opportunity, getting him to sign her portrait of him. The portrait was auctioned, the winning bid coming from Canada raising £2500 for the Acorns Hospice. This set Sue on a new path raising many thousands of pounds for charity through celebrity signed portraits, with some very memorable moments along the way!
