Susan McCall is an artist who lives and works in the Peak District of Derbyshire, UK. Landscape is the dominant theme throughout her life and her work reflects this continuing fascination. She usually begins with movement - a walk, a boat trip, or a cycle ride through the natural landscape.
The drawings and paintings are memories of those experiences. The excitement and awe of the colour, light and texture seen whilst cycling along a green lane or glimpsed whilst boating through the landscape or walking the moors is still overwhelming.
The smell of bluebells, heather, hawthorn, bracken and earth: the blues and greens, the pink and whites and the gold and reds of the landscape and the sounds of bees, grouse, curlews and skylarks combine feelings, visual observation and physical experience in order to create energetic images.
