About the artist:

One of Britain’s leading calligraphers, Susie is known both for her traditional skills in writing with quills on vellum and for her innovative use of the Chinese brush as a writing tool. Susie’s formative years as a calligrapher were spent in Hong Kong, where she developed her passion for Chinese art and language.

Susie also paints in oils, watercolours and ink, sometimes combining painting with calligraphy in the tradition of Chinese art. Much of her work takes the form of handmade artist books.

Calligraphy, painting, poetry: the three arts most treasured by the Chinese. Susie aspires to marry western calligraphy, painting and poetry with the spontaneity and harmony of a Chinese master.
