Susan Allen

I graduated from Ontario College of Art and Design, Toronto, Canada in 1982 with a Fine Art Degree in drawing and painting. I exhibit at Two Tree Gallery and annually with the Leigh Art Trail. I teach art at Southend Adult Community College and privately for 10 years as well as guest lectured for Ontario College of Art.

I paint in a realistic style with a modern edge. I am inspired by Leigh and the beautiful British coast, flowers, life and love. I am influenced primarily by the old masters (Artemisia Gentileschi, Rembrandt, Turner) but also have an interest in contemporary artists and I take inspiration from the challenges that different art styles offer. I work primarily in acrylic and watercolour.
