Suzanne Perry Art
Artist. Specialises in Bird Fine Art in acrylics
Sue has spent most of her life in Suffolk, growing up in the village of Elmsett, and attending Hadleigh High School where she developed a keen interest in art. After leaving school, she followed her other love, which is animals, and worked at a rural veterinary practice until becoming a full-time professional artist in October 2019.
Painting has always been Sue’s hobby and she likes to think that her love of nature shows clearly through her work. Her preferred medium is now acrylics and she creates very detailed work of both bird and background. The choice of mounting and frame, their colour, style and size, is an important part of her work and she gives considerable thought to this aspect of the finished creation. She feels it enhances the painting, especially when one particular tone in the surround sensitively picks up even a hint of a shade in her subject. She senses the work comes more alive and is then truly complete.
Whilst Sue much prefers to specialise in producing originals, her high quality, limited edition, giclée prints are proving extremely popular, sometimes even mistaken for an original. You will see several examples here. Each run is strictly limited to 25 and it gives her great pleasure to know more people have shown an interest in one particular painting. Eight of her works have actually already completed their full run!
Her paintings have traditionally been on high quality paper but she has now expanded her range. This includes painting birds on old milk churns, watering cans and slates, each project arising from an idea from a client or indeed, as with the slates, a holiday in the Lake District! Her “One of a Kind” catalogue also includes keepsake and jewellery boxes as well as box frame pictures for those special occasions.
Sue has exhibited in various Galleries and Shows, including. Monks Eleigh, Lavenham and Stonham in Suffolk, as well as Dedham Essex, Nottingham and recently Anglesey. She has regularly exhibited in a range of Country Shows in East Anglia.
This is her second contribution to Birdfair after a most successful debut last year.
