Susan Skelton’s approach to art making is a vibrant one, where colour and texture are key elements in the energy expressed in her artworks. She tries to capture her passion for strong fluid colour by pushing the boundaries of paint tolerance, to create explosions of colour and form on paper or canvas. Susan is inspired by many things from the drama of stormy clouds through to female beauty. A self-taught artists Susan lives in the Wellington region. She started painting in 2006 and now shows in several New Zealand galleries and sells work internationally.
