Susie Pearce


About the artist:

Susie Pearce is an artist of British and Australian descent. Born in 1967 in Dublin, Ireland, she now lives and works in Cornwall in the UK. Her ancestral roots lie in the wildly beautiful Cornish tin and copper mining countryside that she now feels blessed to call home. The rugged, coastal landscape both inspires and informs her work as does her own experience of the human condition.

Susie paints large scale, visceral land and seascapes in a contemporary style with an abstracted edge. She aims to capture the emotional energy of the landscape around her, portraying beauty, serenity and fragility alongside power, ferocity and turbulence. she reacts to emotions by describing the nature of the elements.  This power and theatre drives the narrative within the painting. Earth, water, air and fire are depicted through intense colour, expressive texture and explosive movement.

After a successful career in marketing, and having four children, Susie has now turned full time to her first love, which has always been painting. She honed her craft under the expert tutorage of Winsor and Newton and Liquitex accredited artist, Kim O’Neil, of Paint Modern Art School. Using  the highest quality acrylic paints and mediums, she uses innovative techniques and materials to create a myriad of different textures and finishes in her work.

During her time working at Paint Modern Art School, Susie also developed a love of teaching and sharing contemporary painting and drawing techniques in an extensive range of different mediums and styles.

Susie has sold work to private collectors in the UK, Europe and Australia.
