Sue Manton

Sue is a late comer to the art world seeking a hobby when she had to retire early from work due to ill health. She has progressed her art by taking lessons from local art teachers and one or two holidays away for more specific tuition; particularly with colour pencils. Sue works with water colours, colour pencils; acrylic and oil choosing the beautiful flowers in her garden and the buildings and scenery of East Kent as her inspiration.

Sue’s colour pencil work has been accepted for exhibition at the Society of Botanical Artists in London and she has also exhibited with Leisure Painter magazine at their Open Exhibition at Patchings Art and Craft Centre in Nottingham.

Sue regularly exhibits and sells her work at local exhibitions and is a member of East Kent Art Society and Canterbury Society of Art. Greetings cards produced by her from her paintings are sold in the Sandwich Tourist Office, Layham Nursery at Staple, Quex Barn in Birchington and now also in Penrallt Garden Centre & Nursery, Moylegrove, West Wales. Sue also has paintings on exhibition along with cards in Hazeedaze Crafts & Curios in Strand Street, Sandwich, Kent.

Sue is pleased to undertake small commissions and some of her pictures of East Kent are hanging in private homes in Europe, America and Australia.”
