Graduating with a Bachelor of Arts (Graphic Design) from Swinburne College, Melbourne, and with two decades of art direction in advertising behind her, Sydney-based artist Susan Hipgrave has discovered a true passion, that of painting on porcelain – her preferred ‘canvas’.
Using a fine hairline brush, each exquisitely detailed artwork reflects the accomplished combination of a steady hand and an expert eye.
Inspired by the diverse beauty of botany and wildlife, Susan’s black-and-white work captures the stunning intricacy of her subjects; every nuanced stroke imbued with a fine energy that demands closer inspection.
It’s this aptitude for detail, and the pleasure it brings that has seen Susan’s work at Planet Commonwealth, GrantPirrie Gallery in December 2009, and ‘Artisans in the Garden’ at Sydney’s Botanic Gardens in October 2012.
Susan’s most recent artworks appeared in a group show ‘On a Wing and a Prayer’ at Melbourne’s MARS Gallery in April 2013.
