Sue grew up in North Wales, UK, surrounded by wonderful colours, aromas, textures and forms the memories of which stay with her.

It didn’t take Sue long to realize that she would be making things for the rest of her life, right from the moment she began to make structures out of twigs, flowers, anything she could find.

Of course, it was not surprising, as her father was always building things, her mother always growing things. In her late teens, Sue decided to study Art & Design and so set off for London to find fame and fortune, still pursuing her passion for making colourful forms as a Sculptor.


During her time in London she studied BA Hons Sculpture at Central St Martins, completing her education at The Royal College of Art where she obtained a Masters’ Degree. Afterwards, Sue taught within Art & Design in London and elsewhere as well as spending a period of time teaching in Mexico City. After 20 years Sue decided to return to Wales, her childhood home, now with purple hair. Her friends call her Purple Sue.

Over the last few years she has maintained her creativity through interior design and decorating. More recently though Sue realized that she wanted to grow things, especially herbs and also make sculptures out of natural and re-cycled materials.
