Sue Pickering is an artist, designer and maker. After choosing the 'sensible option' of a career as a cognitive psychologist, she worked as a university lecturer and researcher, until the time came when she could finally pursue her interest in art and design. In 2010 she completed a Foundation Diploma in Art and Design at Bristol School of Art and has been working on her own mixed-media art practice since that time. Her work aims to capture the beauty and complexity of our everyday experiences and is predominantly abstract in form.
Sue uses a number of processes in each piece of work, including print, paint and collage. Colour, shape and texture are important features in her all of her designs. Her approach allows each piece to evolve and develop in its own unique way. Sue's influences include mid-century modern design, textiles and the shapes, colours and textures of the plants that she grows in her gardens and allotment.
