Sue Mann is based in Killay, Swansea. Originally from Falmouth, Cornwall, she made Wales her home in 1989 and now lives on the doorstep of Gower. Painting is a force which has driven her since the age of 12 when she knew she wanted to paint seriously. Her motto is to create forever, her creativity extends to writing poetry, writing for children, adults and songwriting.
During her studies at Falmouth School of Art and West Surrey College of Art & Design she concentrated on reconstruction from observation, the nature of character, landscape and metaphor. Recently she works from reality on location at the mercy of animals, insects and the elements. She has been involved in mural projects, worked in primary and secondary schools in the Cardiff area and since 2002 has received commissions and tutored on a private basis.
