Tutor: Sue MacDougall

Sue MacDougall is an established artist who was born in New Zealand and has been living in Greece for many years now.in which time has no relevance in the creation of her work, work which absorbs her completely. As an artist her temperament is the motivating factor, that which gives form to her passion. It is easy to be captivated and respond to the feelings inherent in the paintings.

Light is an important factor when using colours. This is why living on the island of Aegina in Greece, which is famous for the luminosity and clarity of its light, is an ideal place for a painter such as Sue to have her studio. Sue’s main influences come from the ‘"Blue Rider Group"’ which included artists such as Wassily Kandinsky and Gabrielle Munter.
