Susan K Stevens
I was born in Liverpool in 1963, was educated at Liverpool Girls College, and went on to study Fine Art and History at Liverpool Institute of Higher Education. I returned to education in 1998 attending Goldsmiths College London from where I obtained a Post Graduate Diploma and Master’s Degree in Art Psychotherapy. My paintings explore a recurring visual sense of isolation and afford a space that the viewer can stamp their own sense of time and place, I deliberately title the paintings in a way that allows the viewer freedom to make the picture their own, whether a landscape or seascape or still life. I paint what I feel and my memory and emotions inform the final piece. I aim to produce work that is distinctive and instinctive, that holds a rawness that is genuine, honest and never contrived.
