Sue prefers to work with natural fibres. She dyes and screen prints her fabrics then works into them with machine and hand stitching. Sometimes she uses paper in her work: either simply stitched paper or combining it with fabric to produce her stitched sketches. More recently, she has been investigating sustainable fabrics from which to produce a range of scarves.
She gives talks and workshops.
