MacKenzie, Suzie

Suzie MacKenzie studied Fine Art at Loughborough University where her interest in printmaking as a fine art medium began. On relocating to the Scottish Highlands she enrolled at the Highland Print Studio where she was able to progress her skills, specifically in collagraph, which subsequently became her medium of choice. She has been working full time as an artist printmaker since 2013 and continues to investigate what she terms a ‘minimal’ approach to collagraph, combining it with innovative chine collé techniques. Influences on her work include Sydney Lee’s prints, Donald Stoltenberg’s collagraphs, and the landscape paintings of Maxfield Parrish. Recent exhibition history includes the Society of Scottish Artists’ 119th Annual Open Exhibition at the Royal Scottish Academy, Edinburgh and the Royal Birmingham Society of Artists’ Print Prize Exhibition. Suzie took part in Printfest, UK’s foremost artist-led printmaking festival, earlier this year.
