Sue Dowse is an Adelaide based artist who works mainly in collage art. Sue graduated from Advertising and Graphic Design, SA School of Art in 1984. She stills works as a graphic designer but in 2019 found an alternative creative passion in collage art, or as she calls it “painting with paper”.
Specifically, Sue uses recycled magazines, type, maps, photos, patterns and more to create one-of-a-kind collages. By ripping and cutting up these items she is able to construct unique works of art that appear semi-realistic from a distance, yet abstract up close. She loves people to lose themselves in the artwork, scanning the fine detail to discover the text and images that intertwine to make these unique "paintings".
Sue is excited to produce an environmentally respectful art form which allows her to give new purpose to discarded magazines, graphics and paper. Her work entices people to look closer. Sue's method is always evolving as she deconstructs an image into shades and shapes that can be depicted on the canvas with paper, and through experimentation overcomes the hurdles to bring a truly individual piece. She hopes you enjoy her work and looks forward to developing her style further in the years to come.

Have been with gallery247 for 6 years, both free and now paid. Wonderful on line platform for artists which has made my work easy to find and i don't need to worry about setting up my own website; they even forwarded a message from a community college i volunteered for a few years ago, for an art tutor.

I have recently become a member of Gallery 247 as an artist, and am so impressed. Communication was quick and very personable. The website seems very user friendly. With the couple of questions I emailed I was looked after with a phone call and very kindly and professionally looked after. Highly recommend.
