Background and Publications:
Susan Poole has a mixed art and academic background. After a degree in Philosophy in London she took an MA in Fine Art from Surrey Institute of Art and Design. However, she spent some years away from Practice researching art and archaeology in the pre-historic Aegean, gaining an MA (Distinct) and PhD from University College London. She has recently published her book analysing the human figure in Bronze Age Aegean art (BAR Archaeological publishers) .
She has been a regular contributor to the Leisure Painter on various subjects including painting in egg tempera, working with coloured pencils, the value of using sketchbooks, composition and finished graphite pencil drawings, reduction linocut and wood engraving. Sketchbook work from Botswana was featured in the SGFA sketchbook series. Her drawings and etchings are also included in the book The Society of Graphic Fine Art, 100 Years, and in the article Meet the Artist Dr Susan Poole SGFA Winner - artistpapers.co.uk (full article HERE).
Her latest book, Drawn to Animals; an artist's encounters can be ordered online from Waterstones, Foyles, Amazon or direct from firstname.lastname@example.org. Over 100 of Susan's drawings, watercolours, etchings and sketches are featured in this beautifully illustrated book of animal studies, with more than 60 in colour, together with some fascinating facts about each animal and how and where it was seen.
