Susan Smith MFA, Painter, Printmaker, Weaver
I was born and brought up in Aberdeenshire, on a farm, a very outdoor life, encouraging my interest in natural history. Art was all around. My father sketched, my mother was an oil painter. Earliest memories are the smell of linseed oil and turpentine!! My son, Leo du Feu, also went to Edinburgh art college, we both live in Burntisland, regularly working and exhibiting together. Each year we go to the Isle of May with a group of artists leading to a joint exhibition with the group. I am a painter and printer (oil, linocut), art tutor and founder of Greenpark Weavers, an off loom tapestry group.
I studied at Edinburgh College of Art, a member of the SSA, the RGI, AAS and of Fife Dunfermline Print Workshop. I was a finalist in the Scottish Portrait Awards 2017, am a member of the Art Collective Gallery Causewayside taking part in Central Fife Open Studios- this year September 1st and 2nd. Studio visits welcome. Commissions undertaken.
