Sue James’ art practice focuses mainly on the mediums of painting and drawing.
Sue explores her favourite themes of flowers, landscapes, city scapes and mountains in a wide range of media, including paint, soft pastels, collage, pen and oil pastel.
Sue’s creative process is resourceful, and includes the use of plastic cards, skewers, brush and finger painting to move paint over the canvas, creating different marks and texture. Some of Sue’s paintings depict places of escape, imaginary landscapes that offer a sense of retreat.
Other work is abstract, depicting geometric shapes and bright colours, which Sue describes as freestyle and expressive.
