About

Sue McQueen is a painter and printmaker who lives and works in London.

She is inspired by landscape and aspects of nature while exploring imaginative and playful reflections on the notion of ‘home’.

She often works in layers which help create a rambling and dreamlike quality where the viewer is being invited to look beyond the image.

She writes poetry and has recently started working as a community artist where she provides painting and printmaking sessions to the elderly.
