Susan Eve is a mainly self taught artist based in Lake Macquarie NSW Australia. With a lifelong love of art and creating Susan first began exhibiting her pen and wash drawings locally in the 1980’s – until life intervened & art took a back seat.In 2004, an introduction to soft pastels reignited her passion and she began showing her work again, this time on the Central Coast of New South Wales. After returning to Lake Macquarie, Susan exhibited around the Hunter region before joining the Newcastle Art Society in 2011, to meet like minded people and be a part of their regular exhibitions. She has remained an active member and her work can be seen at their exhibitions throughout Newcastle and Lake Macquarie. In 2018 Susan began sharing her love of soft pastels, teaching weekly lessons at Tinkat Alley Art Studio.Susan works in a variety of styles and while working mainly with pastels, pencils, pen, and acrylic paint, she has recently also enjoyed discovering inks and mixed media. Her love of nature is reflected in her work, and the beauty of it’s colours, textures and flowing lines are undeniably Susan’s greatest influence. While her inspiration comes from the world around her no two pieces are ever the same, and she is thrilled and proud to have her artwork in people’s homes throughout Australia and the world.
The majority of Susan’s work is influenced by nature and the world around her. Using mainly soft pastels, pen and pencils, acrylic paint, mixed medium and ink, her works often depict local land and sea scapes, and her love of trees, flora, animals and birdlife.
