About Susan Clare

Susan paints in watercolors, acrylics and mixed media. Her work expresses light, color and vibrancy, encouraging a feeling of being connected to, and protective of the natural world.

During 30 plus years in Jamaica, after a fulfilling career in scuba diving, Susan had the privilege of painting from the studio of Jannette Eyles, an RA trained sculptor and painter, for several months. She showed her first solo exhibition, at the Round Hill Hotel in Jamaica, in 1997.  Although specializing in portraits for several years, her first love has always been the natural environment, inspired by her tumbling tropical garden, Caribbean characters and the underwater world. Regular solo or two-artist shows followed yearly, in various locations in Jamaica and Florida.  Since 2013, Susan has reconnected with her native UK countryside, coastlines and wildlife. She now spends her time between the two countries, teaching workshops, giving talks/demos for art clubs and painting commissions. (2020 has been spent on my magical hilltop in Jamaica.)
