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. Recent work includes lyrical semi-abstract landscapes and a cluster of small abstract works, oils studies on board, arising from fascination with dereliction in agricultural buildings, as industrialised structures replace the old stone and corrugated iron and dilapidation in disused harbours, boats and piers.

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, taking part in 'Spring Fling' Studio Trail and setting up artist led galleries, I moved to Cumbria in March 2017, retaining strong links with Dumfries and Galloway.
