Susan Trudinger has been involved with the creative arts all her life. Inspiration comes from nature and is an integral part of her life. Painting and drawing for her is one way she can live fully in present and hopefully contribute in some way to bringing visual enjoyment and beauty to others.
She works in acrylic, gouache, watercolour pencils, ink, pencil and charcoal.
I completed a Degree in Fine Art at the University of South Australia (formerly South Australian College of the Arts and Education). After I completed my degree I had a mixed exhibition with fellow graduates in Adelaide. Over the years several commissions came my way.
I lived in Armidale NSW for over 20 years where I continued to paint but left painting and drawings for a number a years and took up ceramics. I completed a Certificate in Ceramics at TAFE in Armidale.
I sold my pottery at the local markets and through local Art and Craft shops.
I was involved in ceramics for about 7 years then returned to painting and drawing. In the years spent in Armidale I sold my work through the Local Art Gallery on a regular basis.
