Susan Trigg has been involved in the visual arts most of her life and has recently returned to her first love, painting, after some years working as a commercial photographer. She paints from her home studio in between her current career in education.
With a background in literature, media, psychology, textile design and art, Susan is heavily influenced by her fascination with our internal landscape. She paints in an intuitive style but is the first to admit that the natural environment infiltrates her paintings on a subconscious level, possibly due to her years spent living in Central Victoria and on the South-West coast of Victoria.
Susan currently paints in acrylic, building up layers quite quickly. Each painting starts with a basic idea of colour palette and evolves from there, often taking on a life of its own.
