Sue trained as a soft furnisher and upholsterer at The London College of Furniture then worked at Designers Guild producing their made-to-measure curtains and soft furnishings for high-end interiors magazine photoshoots.
Deciding on a change, Sue attended Goldsmiths, gaining a BA and an MA in English Literature. After a ten year hiatus – a teaching career whilst raising her children – she returned to soft furnishings; designing and creating cushions, selling her work at Liberty and other outlets.
Sue is influenced by art and literature, creating strong visuals that make her cushions a statement rather than blend in. Her latest project is tapestry weaving, working on a new collection entitled “Death & Rebirth of Light”.
