Susan then worked in an office environment for over 15 years, but she always had a need to create things. After a chance viewing on YouTube of some coloured pencil artists and a win on the 2017 Grand National, where she eventually decided to go for it and use the money to buy a full set of artist quality coloured pencils. Susan rekindled her passion for Art and especially coloured pencils, she has never looked back since, and has even managed to bag a few International awards.
