I am Susan Craker, used to be Goddard, age 60 years, i am basically a self taught artist, i did spend a short time at art collage in great Yarmouth, but left to have family.
I am very creative, must be doing something that feeds my creative side.
It's been some time since i decided to try and sell my work, i have so many canvas hidden around my home, i need to let some go, it will be hard, but i would get a real kick out of my work knowing that some one has bought one of my pictures.
I have been predominantly a water colour artist as i love detail, and this medium lends it's self well to this, at this time i am working with oils and 3D fabric paint, i am exploring my version of abstract art, i can not just sling paint on a canvas and hope some one will like it, i have to have a reason or a story behind my work. I have recently been exploring emotion, i only did 2 large scale canvases, then stopped because my husband said "who will want some one crying on their wall", made me think, i know i would, as their is a kind of beauty in emotion don't you think?, i only did fear, but if they sell i shall do the others ie happiness, anger etc.
I have just learnt how to use coloured pencil, loved that, will do more work with that later.
I am showing my mixed media pieces, i'm sure my work is different from all the others out there, and if you really love wall bling, you will love my latest works, I would really like to work with an interior designer, if any one wants art to fit in a particular colour scheme please contact me, i love doing large works to make a statement, let me know i can come up with an idea.
While i am waiting to sell my pictures i am exploring beads, making jewelry, and trees, really love creating my own forest, if you would like a particular tree creating let me know, im planning on doing a large tree, a real statement piece for a large room, i will let you know when its finished.
