Past, Present, Paint and Print

Paintings and prints

Date: Mar 4 – Mar 17Space: Small Gallery

Susanne is both an abstract painter and intaglio collagraph printmaker whose work reflects her strong love of colour.

Over the years her work has changed from semi realistic to intuitive non-objective pieces incorporating texture, mark making and pattern. She finds this compelling and challenging.

Paintings from her older Musical Series are regularly used to promote prestigious musical events and have been used in many different places all over the world including the Virenze Concerts held in the classical 14th century Castle Rijckholt in the Netherlands and Sinfónico Pereira in Colombia.

While living in the UK in the early 2000’s she studied under a master printmaker and became fascinated with a printing technique called Collagraph. Susanne’s work in this medium encompasses a variety of themes drawn from a wide range of subject matter.

Her paintings and handprints are in collections in Canada, NZ, Australia, China, Europe, the UK and USA.

A Kiwi by birth she has lived in Ottawa and Toronto, the historic city of York in the UK and the US three times in three different places. Susanne now is delighted to live in Havelock North after returning to NZ in 2020.
