Susanne studied art as a teenager but then went on to pursue a career as a health professional.
However the desire to express herself visually has led her back to studying art. Susanne?s main passion is painting whilst also having interests in collage and photography.
She prefers to use simple processes as this allows her to be more relaxed and experimental. Susanne also endeavours to keep the use of chemicals and waste to a minimum. Susanne is interested in the power the media has in dictating what is seen as beautiful and desirable versus what is ugly and unfashionable.
In the artwork for this event, Cow 631, Susanne hopes that the viewer when faced with an intimate portrait will see the cow as an individual sentient being rather than something used to produce a product; a ?milk machine?.
