Sorry, no Works were found in the Susan Cleaver collection.
Raised on a farm near Arrowtown, Susan grew up surrounded by mountains, water and nature. She has been using photography since school to capture the images of what she sees around her in nature and everyday NZ life. During this time her photography has evolved into art using skills and techniques she acquired as a Web and Database developer.
If Susan's art has a mission, it is this: to capture a slice of NZ local scenes and macro environments and present them in both a colorful and interesting way. It may be a brightly colored telephone box, an old building, or a macro image of a beautiful flower.
Whatever the locale or scene, on the best of days these images will stir up unexpected feelings and thoughts in the viewer, prompting the thought "there is more to see than meets the eye".
Susan is based in Arrowtown and has been creating art from photography for over 8 years. She won first prize at the Orewa Arts Centre Members Exhibition in 2008 and has sold her art throughout NZ and overseas. Currently she is exploring using mixed media collage techniques with photography to introduce more textural and 3D elements to her art.
