Susan Macarthur was born in East Sussex in 1952 and now lives in Broad Chalke near Salisbury, Wiltshire.

She studied at Eastbourne College of Art in 1970, Art Institute of Southern California 1980 – 82,  Saddleback College (US) 1982-84 (Associated Arts), California State University Long Beach 1985-87 (General Art) and City & Guilds Part 1 & 2 Stitched Textiles 1990-93.

Susan is a Fellow of the Society of Designer Craftsmen. 

She initially studied Fine Art primarily painting, drawing and sculpting.  Towards the latter part of her education at Cal State Long Beach she was introduced to textiles and on returning to England has gone on to experiment with different techniques and materials to portray the human form.

I come from a background of life drawing/painting and have always been drawn to the drama of the human form.  My work is a combination of painting together with fabric, paper, thread and paints.  I like the unpredictable occurrences that can arise with these materials and feel there is a strong crossover between the drawn line and a line of thread.  Texture plays a large role in my work – in fact I think it is probably the most important element for me.'

Susan shows her work through galleries, exhibitions and art fairs – upcoming events can be found on her website.
