Susan’s past work has incorporated strong historical themes such as a series based on the Treaty of Waitangi. This reflects her interest and previous studies undertaken in Social History.

“On a subconscious level the subject matter of my artwork is a direct reflection of my own personal history, derived from my experience of being a Pakeha raised in South Auckland. With no link to my Irish/English heritage to make reference to, I embraced the wonderfully rich cultures of the Maori and Pacific Islanders around me. This was reinforced by my family ties to the Te Arawa Iwi.”
