Susie Lidstone has been painting for 30 years and now works from her studio in Farnham Surrey.
The vibrant ever changing colours of flowers, plants and trees throughout the seasons has always fascinated her and she finds that Watercolour is the perfect medium to capture their qualities, and thinks that their appeal is timeless and hopes to capture both the calm and vitality she always feel when studying these subjects.
Susie admires the work of Charles Rennie Mackintosh, in particular his ability to capture the lyrical quality of plant forms. Paul Hogarth and Graham Clarke for their quirky take on Architecture and buildings which she also paints to commission and she has a fascination in painting bricks!; and finally Elizabeth Blackadder whose paintings filled her with delight as a child.
Susie gained her B.A Honours degree in Fine Art Printmaking from The West Surrey College Of Art And Design in 1981. Taught Adult Education classes. Susie conceived and ran children’s workshops based on Projects designed by her for seven years. These kits are now available via an online Children’s Store.
She is a full member of both The Society Of Floral Painters, and The Society Of Architectural Illustration.
Susie has her own range of Greeting Cards and Limited Edition Prints. Which are available online and also at shops, Art Galleries, Museums and Florists.
Susie is represented in The US by Artists Haven Gallery, Artisan Direct, Kettles Fall Arts And Craft Gallery. In The Uk by Creative Coverage, Gallery Fifty Five.
