Suzie studied at Brighton and Exeter Colleges of Art and obtained her degree in ceramic sculpture in 1982. After several years as a designer for Devon based companies during which she gained an insight into modern techniques of industrial ceramic production, she established her own workshop in 1986. Since then she has become well known for her animal sculpture. She has undertaken many private and business commissions including sculpture exhibits for a museum in Taiwan and the public installation of Nelson the Seal at Looe Harbour in Cornwall.
Suzie’s work reflects her own fascination with animal character and form. Her inspiration is taken from life whenever possible and, through constant observation of her own animals, she has become an acknowledged leader in the portrayal of the domestic cat. The studio at Liskeard now produces a large and ever-changing range of cat sculptures which are avidly sought by collectors of her work.
Suzie is a member of the Royal British Society of Sculptors.
