Suzanne's Artscape

I am a full-time artist living in Leeds. I specialise in landscape and seascape using watercolour. I am passionate about our Yorkshire environment and the diversity of the countryside and coast. I am inspired by the small sections of a scene that I find interesting such as rock pools, streams or a section of woodland. My work has a slightly dream like quality emphasising on colour, texture and light. My main aim is to invite the viewer into my world, to take in the detail and atmosphere.

Venue: Crow's Nest, 9 Cowbar Bank

Medium: Watercolourist
