Susie Hartley (BA Hons Fine Art)
I have been interested in working with figurative sculpture for the past 30 years. I began my love for figurative art whilst studying for my degree at Canterbury College of Art (in the late 1980's). I have continued to develop this passion alongside teaching Art and Design A Level in East Sussex.
The majority of my figurative sculptures have been made in either clay or wax, which are then cast in a variety of cold cast materials including bronze resin. I have found this material to be more durable and sustainable to work with. My sculptures can also be cast into bronze and more recently I have started to fire my work in a kiln and use a variety of glazes.
I live in Lewes, East Sussex and work in both 2D and 3D researching the human form. I also love to draw and print other natural forms and use lino, drypoint and photosilkscreen processes as another way to express my creativity.
