SUZANNE CHISNELL. BA Hons Dip LA CMLI. 

Su studied art whilst living in Minnesota, USA which together with sailing and landscape design have become her life long passions.

As a former World class sailor who’s competitive sailing career included representing Britain at both Class and Womens’ World Competitions, she spent many hours on the water. Her fascination lies not only with the yachts themselves but their place in the surrounding landscape and their association with the movement, texture and reflections in the water, under ever changing light effects.

Following a successful career in Landscape Architecture Su is now a full time professional artist, working in oils to express the 3D landscape around her. Su is developing an emotive and painterly style, working en plein air, from life studies and in her studio.

Combined with exhibiting her work in galleries around East Anglia, in 2015 she held her first solo exhibition in Norwich and her first ‘Pop Up’ exhibition at the Hall on the banks of the River Yare in the summer of 2014. Su is a full member of EAGMA.
