Suzie studied at Brighton and Exeter Colleges of Art and obtained her degree in ceramic sculpture in 1982. After several years as a designer for Devon based companies during which she gained an insight into modern materials, she established her own workshop in 1986.
Suzie's work reflects her own fascination with animal character and form. Her inspiration is taken from life whenever possible and, through constant observation of her own animals. Suzie is a member of the Royal British Society of Sculptors.
