Susan Lishman


Susan believes her work often reflects her childhood in Zimbabwe and her previous career as a graphic designer. Working mostly from memory and imagination, Susan uses line, colour, pattern and contrast in an attempt to make the subject her own, she sees the result as a 'graphic impression', a decorative celebration of nature.  Born in Johannesburg and raised in Zimbabwe, Susan emigrated to England, and worked as a freelance graphic designer until she began painting full time in 2000Moved to France in October 2007.
