Get to Know Us

Susan Curtin Artist & Teacher

Susan Curtin

Artist, Teacher and Business Owner

Susan is passionate about her art practice and teaching others to find their creative talents. Whether you are an adult or child, the importance of play, exploration and discovery is encouraged in order to learn and retain essential individual skills in the creative process. She brings a wealth of teaching experience to The Art Hub from Early Childhood through to adult education using a “no fail” approach. Teaching subjects across the curriculum, with long periods in Special Education, teaching English and as a sign language interpreter, Susan holds firm in the belief that we all possess untapped potential.
As an intuitive artist, Susan responds emotively to elements in nature and personal experiences to represent lasting visual impressions. After being involved in painting and drawing from an early age, she returned to the art world in 2015 to pursue her lifelong passion for painting full time after retiring from teaching. 
Imprinted memories inspire the creation of each painting and relate to special places, people and events through a close connection with nature. A variety of found and recycled mark making tools are utilised, alongside traditional brushes and palette knives, to recreate patterns in nature and manipulate images spontaneously.  With an emphasis on the interplay of light, colours, shapes and lines, these are laid down in layers, using a process of washes and marks in acrylics, inks and oil pastels, together with other mixed media. Painting en plein air is an important part of her art practice.
Whilst working predominately in abstract, Susan also paints impressionist and traditional portraits, landscapes and still life in oils, acrylics and mixed media.
