Meet the Tutors
Susie Kenny is a self taught mixed media artist living and working in County Wicklow, Ireland.

It was through her work curating eclectic exhibitions that her passion to pursue her own artistic path was ignited.
Whilst working in mixed media a passion for creating sculptural forms in wire and stone emerged thematically based on the intricate patterning of bare winter trees. Using found objects of rocks, gemstones crystals, driftwood etc. Susie entwines these in a symbiotic relationship with the wire, reflecting the symbiotic relationship of the trees' root system with the earth.
