About

Me in the studio.

Susan is a UK-based printmaker, working mainly through the medium of linocut.  She is interested in the process of translating her sketches/images into linocut prints – drawing inspiration from the natural world around her.

​Born and raised in the North-East of England, after studying Archaeology, Information Technology and French, she spent nearly 20 years in digital communications/education and international data and lived for 10 years in Manchester. Now married with two children and a clingy spaniel, she has returned to her home town, Saltburn and rediscovered her love of art, specifically printmaking. 

She bases work on her own sketches and photos and produces limited edition prints with relatively short runs from a home studio in Saltburn-by-the-Sea. 

UK OUTLETS

Prints and cards can be bought directly from this online shop or via Artfinder.com/susenoble. Alternatively, a few of Susan's prints are available from Hey Ho & Co Store (Saltburn, North Yorkshire), and in the Inspired by… Gallery shop (Danby Moors Centre, North Yorkshire).
