Susan Evans is an artist working mainly in oils. She studied at the Chelsea College of Art in London. In 2000 she won the National Peterborough First Open prize.
Susan's paintings are mostly inspired by walks in England in all seasons. They communicate great calm and intense emotional depth at the same time, representing horizons, the mystery of distance and the movement of clouds.
Susan's skyscapes on canvas are blended to the extreme in order to give a soft, blurry effect; she sometimes even uses cloths to make the paint as thin as possible, and then builds up a canvas with slightly thicker paint, sometimes using a small amount of palette knife work.
The artist's influences clearly include Constable, Rothko and Turner.
Susan has had solo art exhibitions in Holland and in the UK and took part in many group shows, at Francis Iles, Rochester, in London, Bath and Brighton and in Cornwall and the Royal Festival Hall. She also regularly shows in art fairs in England and abroad. Her work is collected internationally by institutions such as Exeter College in Oxford, the Peterborough Museum and Live Wire in California.
