Susan Debnam began painting in 2012 whilst living and working in the Middle East, her training has been with UK based artists and for two years as part of an online programme coming out of California. Her work is abstract, often informed by the Suffolk landscape, sometimes still life. Inspired by reed beds, rotting hulls and ceramic forms she builds her paintings in layers using an unconventional range of tools. Mud, reedbeds, rotting hulls, dilapidated barns, softly coloured stone buildings, the raw energy of farm life, all provide inspiration for her paintings. She paints primarily in water-based media and take an abstract approach to landscape and still life. Susan is inspired by Harry Beckerís exquisite connection with the Suffolk landscape and his ability to portray local life sometimes in detail, often with an economy of line and form. A member of the Inspired by Becker Art Society and of Suffolk Open Studios from Aldringham, Suffolk and has exhibited at the Art Station, Saxmundham; George Farnham Gallery, Saxmundham; Ferini Art Gallery, Pakefield, Lowestoft and elsewhere.
