Sue is a Plymouth-based printmaker whose practice centres on collaborative making and photo collage. Before she pulled her first screen print back in 2013, she was a graphic designer & art director working in the fashion industry in London. Following her newfound passion for print, she completed a Masters in Printmaking in 2021 and was awarded the Principles Commendation Award from Arts University Plymouth. Sue now runs her print studio at Alma Yard, making high-quality, affordable print pieces alongside continued experimentation with paper and textile processes, including woodwork and doll-making.
Sue currently lectures on BA (Hons) Graphic Design and she is regularly commissioned to deliver projects and events using Colossal - an innovative mobile print workshop which Sue designed and constructed in collaboration with Plymouth FabLab. Her colourful, playful, conversational project intends to bring print to the people, highlighting accessible, hands-on forms of engagement and igniting creativity in others through the agile art form of printmaking.
Sue has worked with arts organisations like The Box, KARST Contemporary Gallery, Take-A-Part, Plymouth Design Forum, British Art Show and Plymouth Culture. She is a Challenge and Support Partner to Mayflower Community Academy, bringing her perspective about how the arts can be applied realistically as a mechanism for change and community connection.
