About the artist

Hi Im Sue Dyde and thank you for reading my story 

My story begins with working in jewellery design which I did for just on 28years after needing a break from this I went with my daughter to Balmain in Sydney  Australia while she finished her studies on a university placement, I decided to give painting a go to fill in my days while she was at work and soon discovered the love of creating artworks.

A year later I left my Job and told hubby I was going to concentrate on becoming an artist (much to his surprise and horror) I tried all sorts of experiments with paint and mixed media and finally developed my style.

At first It was not easy and one of the scariest things to do when you become an Artist is to exhibit your work Yes, I`m not joking!!!

 I remember feeling terrified the first time I put my artworks in an exhibition. I entered six paintings in a local exhibition -my contemporary style was completely different from the other art works shown and as it turns out, well received, I sold three paintings in that exhibition and that gave me the confidence to keep going.

I am so grateful I decided to change my career, I love my job and I love creating art. when I`m in my studio I`m in my happy place.

I`m so delighted to say my artworks have found homes all over Australia and overseas.

 I`m a country girl from Wagga Wagga and the colours of Australia run in my blood, the Ocean, the outback, and mountains, feed my work and are my inspiration.

 If you need a special piece created just for you or just want to chat about a piece you have seen on my website give me a call on 0407211244 Id love to hear from you.

Cheers Sue
