Extended Bio
I started my printing business nearly two years ago. before that I was a music teacher and a prison yoga teacher. I come from an artistic family and back in the late 1970's I had the privilege of living with the artist Winifred Nicholson. She allowed me to set up a loom in her studio and there I worked as a weaver, dying all my own yarns and learning a huge amount about colour. I work from my beautiful studio on the edge of Darmoor. I love Dartmoor - the rich landscape, the wilderness, the feeling of freedom and sense of ancient history. I love the rough texture and the randomness of the huge majestic granite boulders and tors. I love art and textiles and I love mixing colours. I'm love jazz improvisation and this inspires my work. I use deliberately low-tech methods, hand-printing with potatoes and other unusual objects. Each potato has its own unique shape, which I allow to influence the design.  I work intuitively, starting with the germ of an idea and allowing the process to develop leading to a result which was not planned. The cushions and lampshades I make are unique and inspired with no more than two of any particular style. This means that a 'Susie Honnor' is a rare thing!
I hand-print onto linen using potaoes (mainly) and colour fast fabric inks. I work intuitively and I am inspired by the landscape and granite of Dartmoor, by colour and by music. My unique cushions and lampshades are made in editions of two and I hope that each one brings joy.
