Susan comes from an artistic family so it is no surprise that she has always drawn. Her grandfather was in the theatre, her father always drew and her uncle was an art director for films. She trained as a teacher and worked in primary and special needs education while also continuing art, pottery and quilting in her spare time. In 2002 she attended a botanical painting course at Chelsea and her career as botanical artist took off.
She is a founding member of the florilegium at Hampton Court and she takes commissions for paintings and quilts. She has exhibited widely and has paintings in many private collections.
