Susan Allen paints local landscapes of Leigh and the beautiful British coastline interpreting and reflecting on the beauty and power of nature.
“I love the sea and the all the mysteries held within it... deep chasms of rich colour and beauty, dark turbulent waves, modern and historical secrets and translucent life forms both real and imaginary. Living by the sea has had this effect on me, penetrating my work in both bold and subtle ways.”
Susan studied drawing and painting in the 80’s in Canada, spending one year in Florence, Italy as part of her Fine Art Degree. Currently, she exhibits at Two Tree Gallery and Leigh Art Trail and teaches art at Southend Adult Community College, Create98 and privately.
