About Susan Harper

Throughout her life Susan has painted. Born in London in 1947, Susan was greatly influenced by her Father, a Master Printer, taking time out to be married and raise two children. Susan has travelled extensively living in Australia and Singapore before returning to the U.K. in 1983.

Largely self taught, for Susan the one thing she is clear about is that she knows what she wants to get across to the viewer: to portray the beauty in all things, painting only subjects and creatures that she holds great affection for.
