Susan Macarthur studied Fine Art at California State Long Beach and Laguna Beach School of Art. Whilst drawing, painting and sculpting she discovered fabric and stitch. On returning to England she has gone on to experiment with different techniques and materials to portray the human form.
‘I come from a background of life drawing/painting and have always been drawn to the drama of the human form. My work is a combination of painting together with mixed media although I feel my work is more painterly than textile. Layers of pattern play a large role as I feel it helps to hold the work together and hopefully provides depth and texture’.
Susan shows her work through galleries, exhibitions and art fairs – upcoming events can be found on her website.
