Susie started sculpture, as she explains, by accident. A visit to the Devon Art Workshop of the Society of Equestrian Artists to draw horses was where she met Scilla Hann, the sculptor who persuaded her to join a course with her and Judy Boyt to learn to sculpt.

This was 10 years ago and, since then, she has not looked back and is now well established.  She has been described as 'incredibly  talented' with a 'strong sense of proportionality and sensitivity', 'her attention to detail is beautifully observed' and 'she constantly strives to better herself'.  Anyone who knows her, knows her absolute passion for animals and that she is a highly sensitive person, reading both humans and animals by body language.  This is the secret to her capturing the character and essence of her pieces. She says 'it may sound silly, but I think you have to feel your subject from inside and translate it in to your piece'.

She occasionally teams up with the very talented young sculptor Jenna Gearing.  When they sculpt together they are WILSON AND GEARING and the combination is a force to be reckoned with, having been commissioned by ASPREY of London at the end of 2017.

Susie's horse can be seen in the VIP area at The Cheltenham Festival and also at the Grand National meeting at Aintree in 2018. During 2018, a combination of work is travelling to several venues around the country were they have been invited.

Susie has sold pieces within the United Kingdom and around the world including Canada, Australia, America, Germany, Norway and Switzerland.

'I know how lucky I am to be able to do what I do and it is the best feeling in the world when someone is reduced to tears when they see their dog or horse or child and I have captured some of the love that that person holds'.
