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

She is inspired by landscape, nature and her ‘everyday’.  She works in brightly coloured layers (using oil, acrylic and mixed media), which interact and help to create a rambling and dreamlike quality where the viewer is being invited to look beyond the image.

She writes poetry and is also a Community Artist where she provides painting and printmaking workshops for people of all ages. This includes for older people, and for those who live with Alzheimer’s and Dementia.
