Invited  Speaker from Australia. Invited to present  work at Boulder University in Colorado. Susan joins a selection of speakers from around the world and many states of USA.


On moving to the coast I became inspired by the beauty that surrounded me . My daily beach walks filled  me with new inspirations . I became facinated with the ever changing tidal marks ,and the dappled sunlight appearing to dance on the water.This observation became a valuable starting point for many prints to come.

My concern is for the ever increasing amounts of plastic in all forms finding its way into our oceans . During my early research I discovered that ocean going seabirds were feeding their young a toxic mix of plastic and fish.The deaths of many sea birds nesting on Midway Island in the Pacific Ocean found their stomachs to be full of plastic shapes,bottle tops,and lids of many colours.This catostropic event  led me to further my research into plastic in our oceans.

Collecting of plastic in all forms during my beach walks became mandatory. Art works followed using collected plastic. eg. Mandala 4.5mtrs.-fused plastic collected from beach walks.
Prints were made using discarded netting. eg. 'DRIFT'.

 

I hope to make  work from the information I gain from my visit to Boulder Colorado.USA.

 

July update:  Susan is working on some large monoprints depicting the marine environment.
