Susan Erskine-Jones began training as an artist in South Africa. She gained a distinction in printmaking at Natal Technikon before moving to Cape Town where she studied printmaking under Pippa Skotness of Micheallis University. Since moving to the UK she has studied a further year at Amersham College, Buckinghamshire, concentrating on painting, for which she gained a distinction.
Susan continues to work in both printmaking and painting. She is inspired by her environment, although the early impressions and memories of the South African Cape still strongly influence her work.
I am drawn to the enduring qualities of my environment and exploring residual memories they hold. The finished piece evolves through the process of the building up the image through a series of layers allowing the composition to emerge from the canvas or printing plate.
