ABOUT THE TEACHER

Suzy Pickles started her screen printing adventure as a fourteen year old in a course where she learned to construct her own timber frames, stretch the silk, cut stencils, block with gum acacia, create alignment, build up layers of transparency with print paste, and, ultimately, to create beautiful works of art. These skills became the basis of Suzy's screen printing practice, and are still with her decades later.

She has recently returned to a screen printing practice after many years pursuing other creative avenues, including completing a Masters of Art (Time-based Art) at CoFA, working as a graphic designer for many years, raising two boys, renovating three houses, travelling, cooking sourdough, and, appropriately, making pickles. She recently had an exhibition of her screen printed artworks at The Corner Gallery, Stanmore.
