Susan Isaac is a Cardiff born artist, now based in Nottinghamshire.  She works mostly in oils in a loose figurative style which occasionally dissolves into the abstract elements of her compositions, combining strong drawing skills with bold use of colour and application of texture. Her subjects are mainly towns and seascapes. She loves the insistent repetitive textures of the built environment contrasting with the gentle rhythms of nature.  Her coastal depictions and harbour scenes are a transposition of childhood memory onto current day experiences. The common thread is her "endeavour to capture the spirit of things or places I have known, to seek to illuminate aspects of the world that have captured my imagination - to evoke feeling".
