Susan Macarthur was born in East Sussex and now lives in Broad Chalke, Wiltshire. She initially studied Fine Art and was introduced to textiles towards the latter part of her education at Cal State Long Beach. She has since gone on to experiment with different techniques and materials to portray the human form. She says, “I come from a background of life drawing/painting and have always been drawn to the drama of the human form. My work is a combination of painting together with fabric, paper, thread and paints.” Susan has exhibited extensively across the UK for over ten years, participating in group & solo shows as well as Art Fairs abroad.
