Devon Artist Network

Sarah Chapman
Network Coordinator

Art, artists, and increasing access and reach to culture is my driving passion. With a background in arts administration and curation, I have had the pleasure of working with artists from all around the world, whilst profiling and championing a diverse range of artists and makers from across the region. I am also an artist.

I am a contemporary artist interested in the natural world, I make mixed media paintings. My passion and intention for DAN members is to facilitate good quality and exciting exhibiting opportunities for all.

The Teign Estuary outside my balcony, the salt air kisses my face, a woodburning stove at my feet. My fascination for faces, figures and abstractions just grows. In essence my work is a bit weird, but I like that.

Susan Purser Hope

I am an artist who works with fused glass. I love the therapeutic power of colour to soothe or excite and I chose the magical material of glass because it is such a dynamic and demanding material.
