See the Art of Susan Wooler

susan wooler artistI create intricate and unique textured paintings using acrylics, I use texture to give the painting depth and tactile quality, the texture stimulates two different senses: sight and touch.

A juxtaposition of soft and delicate with accents of thick texture and bold colour. The colour palette is both modern and neutral with hints of vibrant, colourful tones that balance the paintings out nicely. They capture an ephemeral quality that is fleeting and beautiful, like seizing a moment or dream.

I’m from the UK originally brought up on a Council Estate, went to a Comprehensive School in Manchester, and now living in a beautiful Welsh seaside village with my family. Coming from a working-class family, I was instilled with a strong work ethic from a young age. My mom was a Dinner Lady and  Dad worked in a Factory, my parents always worked hard to provide for me and my sisters.

Although we didn’t have much, we were happy and cared for; what we lacked in material items we were given a much greater gift – love and encouragement. I live by the values my parents passed down, to care, be compassionate and be grateful.

I have a passion for the planet/our home/our earth my imagination runs wild whilst I am creating a piece of art. My husband, myself, and our Labrador live in a little bungalow that backs onto the sand dunes. I spend hours walking on and the beach or sitting in the dunes watching the sunset I find it very calming watching the changing colours and tones in the sky and sea, and it always gives me a lot of inspiration for my paintings
