"I am inspired by tribal art, which has developed an appreciation of the power of simplicity. The masks and figures of different cultures have informed and broadened my interest in and understanding of both beauty and craftsmanship, of contrast and opposites, darkness and light, wakefulness & sleep, and of the cycle of life itself."

Sue Hanna Studied sculpture at St Martin's School of Art, London where she began to work with metal and wood. Since then Sue has been working and living in Pembrokeshire and has exhibited throughout the UK. Sue began to work with fired clay in the 1990s. Since then her work as developed, sue is influenced by human form and tribal arts. Recent work is concerned with exploring the figure in the abstract and objects decorated with geometric symbols and rhythmic patterns present in African textiles.
