This is a charming set of square, white-framed fruit paintings, perfect for a kitchen, conservatory or breakfast room arrangement.
Susie's remarkable renderings of fruit and vegetable skins, with their bloom and crevices and lush ripe flesh underneath, make you almost think you can pluck out a baby aubergine or plum, right from the painting.

Who ever thought fruit and veg could be so beautiful!
The pieces very much lend themselves t
