Art Work

This blog is one avenue of my work as an artist. Please see my website http://susanhughesartist.com for a catalogue of other visual art work.

‘I respond visually to experiences gathered; of being within the landscape and sea; of being part of the culture and history of a place; of my own memories or references to a place.  Text is an invaluable tool to provide context as well as an integral part of the aesthetic image-making process. In my blog, the writing becomes a craft through which to build the image.

As a traditional musician, an awareness of the connection between the folk music and stories of a place instills in me a reverence for each note as a direct link to past human interactions and experiences.
