Hi, my name is Sue Clyne and I'm a Fantasy Artist.
I live in Norwich where I was born. We have always lived close to the beautiful Norfolk countryside, so as youngsters, my
friends and I could be found taking bike rides and walks to see the animals. I enjoyed sketching the horses along the way
and to this day still enjoy those walks and taking pictures of the horses. Horse riding every Sunday, paid for with our hard
earned pocket money, and galloping across the countryside still evokes warm memories of those long and lazy summer days.
My Early Years
From early childhood I have always been very creative and imaginative, drawing and making things, playing games with my
friends. I would go to work with my dad and I remember bribing him into buying me a sketch pad or colouring book and a
packet of Bon-Bons; he knew I'd be happy for the rest of the day. At the end of every school year I would proudly present my
mum with the straight A's I had achieved in Art. I also enjoyed membership of the after school Art club. During my final year
in school, my Art teacher begged me never to give up my art, but I couldn't wait to leave school to begin earning a wage! I
have never forgotten the encouraging words of my Art teacher. Aged just eighteen I married young and soon had my first
child. Two more children followed, and now, twenty years later and divorced, I've finally discovered who I really am.
I have no formal training, I am totally self-taught. My love of fairy and fantasy art has blossomed since admiring the work of
great Artists like Brian Froud and the late Susan Seddon Boulet. The latter for her fantasy art which, I feel, is very similar to my
own style. I began my painting with watercolours for their transparency and light, but found it unforgiving and not very
tameable. Now I'm using Acrylics on large canvases as the colours are more vibrant and I find I can better change and move
the paint. Today I have exhibited my work at various venues in my area, such as the popular forum, castlemall and local
"Mind and Body" fair's. After giving up my job recently, I can now dedicate my time to my love of art.
