Suzan Malcolm

Suzan Malcolm graduated from Edinburgh College of Art in 1980, where a love of the decorative and textural led her to specialise in Ceramics and Tapestry. Although now principally known as a painter, the influence from this training, with its emphasis on Japanese artistic values, is still evident in her work today.A former President of the Paisley Art Institute, Suzan is also an elected Artist Member of Glasgow Art Club and the Glasgow Society of Women Artists. She has received many awards, including the Honorary Diploma of the Paisley Art Institute (HPAI) in 2013, the PAI’s Adam Award in 2008, and the Special Prize for Painting from the Glasgow Society of Women Artists in 2007. Her work is to be found in many private collections. After a hugely enjoyable career teaching Art and Design and lecturing in Art Education, Suzan took the decision in 2009 to concentrate on her own art, and has never looked back.  In 2012, she visited Japan for the first time with her son, Adam, and felt that, after many years of travelling, she had finally arrived. “Flowers are my passion; the paradox of capturing their strong intense colour while describing their delicate transient beauty has been my principal interest and the starting point for most of my paintings. I work in watercolour, mixed media and oils, aiming to create poetic paintings that have elements of the remembered and imagined as well as the observed.”
