Susan Skelton

“As far back as I can remember I have wanted to paint.”

Susan just adores colour, strong texture, warmth and the feeling of being drawn into a painting. Her influences come from many streams; an angry ocean, soft warm sand, the sun rising through heavy cloud, a clear blue sky. By incorporating these facets into her work Susan produces abstract and landscape pieces that are striking and at the same time very pleasing to the eye.

Susan also has a great passion for painting the beauty of the female form.

Susan has travelled considerably throughout Asia and Europe, loving every minute, all the scenery, customs, food, sights and the ways of the people, however her home and heart lies in the beauty of New Zealand.
