Sue has been influenced in most of her work by the renowned Portraitist Ken Paine PS who she worked with in London and Paris where she is a member of The French Pastel Society.
Whenever possible Sue works with models whose body language and eyes tell her much about their inner feelings and characters. A young model who had a certain bearing became The Operagoer.the Ex Prisoner although now a free man still bore the despair and hurt from years of incarceration.
Sue loves jazz and has painted and sold to jazz and rock legends. She was commissioned by the BBC to produce work for their Radio 2 and 3 Jazz Awards and Quincy Jones who won a Lifetime Achievement Award bought the Portrait Sue painted for this special occasion.
