Born in Midleton, East Cork. Susan grew up next to the Ballyannon woods as well as the Owennacurra estuary where she developed a love for, and connection with her landscape. Being close to so many beaches, inspiration was taken from the stony strands and the rugged coastline.
“I grew up believing in the magic of the woods and seeing shapes in the ripples of the water, I still do”
