Susie's remarkable renderings of fruit skin, with its bloom and crevices, and lush ripe flesh underneath make you almost think you can pluck out a plum or orange and devour it, right from the paper.


Their geometrical arrangement on the canvas gives Susie full scope to play with lay-out and precision and the placing of light and the all-important shadows, on which she lavishes equal time and care to get the three-dimensional reality just right for the overall design.


13 Oranges and 12 Plums are two of the largest paintings in the wide range of Susie's work that we're showing. The pieces very much lend themselves to arrangements of two or more works, side by side or in a group. They range in price from £160 to £320 each.


    An admirer of the op art paintings of Bridget Riley, with their repeat patterns, Susie's graphic design career is evident in the crisp, linear patterns she creates in her fruit painting, as she plays with composition, light and shadow.


    She started out, during lockdown, with her 'socially distanced peas' and has progressed through virtually every form of fruit and vegetable since then.


    Her artistic output has taken off over the last few years as she has developed her acrylic painting style in these modern still lifes, working on both on paper and, more recently, mainly on canvas. She also makes most of her own frames.
