Susan mills Art words on a contemporary abstract art painting.

Contemporary mixed media artist

Art that grabs your attention and suspends it whilst you rest here awhile in quiet contemplation

Inspired by her love of the ‘wilds of Cumbria’, Susan’s work explores the beauty of impermanence, the transience of nature & the seasons. Her rich multi-layered abstract art has a ‘there/not there’ quality with hidden depths that instil the viewer with contemplation and a quiet joy…

There is such peace here in Cumbria but also an energy. The older I get, the more attuned I am to the seasons, unconsciously absorbing their rhythm and flow. Fragility is a reacurring theme in my painting’

....All of her paintings are beautiful....

Susan is a very talented lady. When she was making her bags I purchased one, which was extremely high quality and very well made. Susan is now painting. All of her pantings are beautiful. I have recently purchased a mini floral abstract in a  mount. I am so pleased with it and would not hesitate in highly recommending any of her art work.
