Statement

I have been a visual artist for most of my life. Printmaking, painting, artist books, sound and drawing are tools I have used to try and express the growing, natural world, in one form or another.

Gardening connects me with fundamentals - through air we breathe and food we eat, we are made one with the whole scene around us. I try to reflect this in what I make.

My work is in private and public collections, including the Victoria and Albert Museum, Dartington Hall Trust, Oxford University and hospitals in the South West. I have exhibited in commercial and public galleries across the UK since 1990.

I welcome visitors to my home studio. Invitations to commission can be made directly through this website, by ringing 01803 732634 or by email - sue@suedeakin.com.
