Susie Perring


Susie Perring works almost entirely in aquatint (images made up entirely of tones, with no drawn lines) or makes monoprints painted directly on the printing plate. Much of her work is made using multiple plates, which are laborious to create, but give wonderful luminous colours in the prints. Almost all of the prints on show are aquatints.

Susie went to the London College of Printing in 1963-1967, and then worked as a graphic designer in the 60s and 70s. In 1984, she started full time as an artist, specialising as a printmaker in etchings, line and aquatint.

Susie has had prints shown at five Royal Academy summer exhibitions and regularly shows work at galleries in the UK and abroad. She has also been commissioned for complete editions destined for P&O cruise liners.
