"I love reflections on water in both reality and paintings. I have previously enjoyed painting reflections and wanted to capture the energy and lighting that exudes from a carnival. Having just finished painting 'Strictly Carnivale' (a play on words with two ballroom dancers dancing at a carnival), I continued with this theme, entitling this piece 'Riverside Carnivale'."
Prior to a serious and life-threatening medical incident at the beginning of 2020, Sue Palmer was accepted to study a Master of Visual Arts. She regrettably withdrew from the program shortly after commencing, with a lengthy recovery ahead of her. This experience has now influenced her work.
Sue studied art through senior high school and chose art as an elective subject while attaining her Bachelor of Education, achieving high distinctions.
Sue’s primary practice is acrylic and mixed media paintings, but she has more recently taken to charcoal drawing, oil and soft pastel paintings, which she’s become equally fond of. Other interests lie in mixed media sculptures, with wood being the primary medium. She also chooses to incorporate found objects - her small contribution to reducing landfill.
