Artist Bio or Statement / Bio de l’artiste ou la déclaration
Dr Susan Poole UKCPS, SGFA has a mixed art and academic background. She gained an MA in Fine Art from Surrey Institute of Art and Design, UK, but spent some years away from practice to research Aegean Art and Archaeology, for which she was awarded her PhD at University College London.
She has exhibited and won awards for her drawings in major London and international exhibitions. Pencils, both graphite and coloured, are the tools she most likes to use. Animal often provide her subject matter, not least because of the versatility they present in terms of form, colour and surface texture, like individual landscapes. She has travelled extensively to make first hand studies of these. She also makes drawings of objects found in her environment that embody particular personal meanings. As well as being a member of the Pencil Art Society she is a full member of the Society of Graphic Fine Art (SGFA) and a signature member of the UK Coloured Pencil Society (UKCPS).
