With over half the county as protected countryside, is there any wonder that Susan Jane Skilton finds her inspiration in her home county of Sussex. Finding inspiration from the South Downs and the miles of dramatic and distinctive coastline, Susan Jane Skilton's thick impasto paintings explore her surrounding landscape. "I have lived in Sussex all my life…Through the exploration of colour and texture, using a wide range of mediums I hope to convey a strong sense of emotion and the ever changing mood and voice of the living landscape I know so well, which constantly surprises and inspires me. " she says. Her work is been exhibited and sold extensively for many years and is in many public and private collections.
