BA (hons)Int Des. PGCE Art & Des

Based at her home in Solihull, Sue Wiseman carries out exclusive art classes to suit any budding artist in her new studio. Specialising in absolute beginners the classes are designed to promote confidence and bring out the inner artist. Working in various drawing and painting media, classes are guaranteed to be both relaxed and informal.

Sue is a highly qualified and experienced artist and teacher and has been involved with art related projects for over 45 years. Her journey began in the 70's when she attended Birmingham Art College and achieved a 1st class {hons} degree in interior design. Having worked in many different aspects of both commercial and domestic interior projects, her love for colour and texture enabled her to create paintings that perfectly complemented the interior projects she was working on. 

Having qualified in 2001 with a PGCE in Art & Design, 

Sue now concentrates purely on her art and she believes that anyone can create a picture to be proud of!
