Discussing her work Sue says : “I need isolation and seclusion to work and walking in the wild northern landscape with its changing light constantly inspires my work. Trees and skies, particularly at night time and last light are subjects I return to. Walking outdoors is one of the last things that remain free and it helps me to think and generate ideas for new works.”
