Susannah Lawless

We are honoured to be representing Ilkley based artist Susannah Lawless in our Spring Reflections exhibition alongside Tara Joy’s botanical casts. 

To me her work captures gestural sense’s of the Yorkshire Dales moorland in particular Ilkley Moor. She specialises in acrylic paints and we feel she captures the natural Yorkshire landscape in all weather types. However when I look at Susannah’s work I often see the a moody winter sky and think of walking through our wild moorland landscape.

Susannah often paint’s from her photography, but the energy which you can see throughout her more abstract pieces is from memories and the emotional response she feels at the time.
