Susan Hippe BA(Hons) ASGFA In general I like to work on a wide range of themes with stylistic versatility and the expression of great vitality. My aim is to create strong, colourful works that reflect the vibrancy and diversity of the world, but also reflect my own energy, within the physical process of making. Progressive drawing, often combined with mixed media/collage on a large or small scale, is an essential means of expression. Original themes and ideas are preferred and I find it interesting to incorporate the use of more unusual media - either as support or collage material - such as cosmetic pads, coffee filters, pencil sharpener residue, plastic, quilt, textile, aluminium foil, balloons, etc., exploring the possibilities of the apparently banal objects of the consumer's world.
