Susan Gathercole

Elected in 2016

Born in Glasgow in 1962, I graduated in Fine Art from Liverpool in 1984. I have lived near Llanberis, North Wales for nearly 30 years, painting and drawing in a small studio in the garden, looking over the trees to the mountains.

My current focus is still life. Subjects include household objects – jugs, bowls, mugs. Plants, birds, animals and people sometimes feature against a backdrop of sea or mountains, often seen from an intuitive, dream-like perspective.
