About Me/Sue Vanderplank Art/Derby

Sue studied Fashion Design at Derby College of Art between 1976 & 1979, and went on to work as a designer in the fashion industry.

In 2001 she gained a BA (Hons) Degree in Printed Textiles at University of Derby, and now produces limited edition prints using a wide range of techniques including:- silkscreen, linocut, collograph, etching & drypoint.

She takes inspiration from nature, simplifying or abstracting natural forms & combining these with colour, pattern & texture.

Influences from Fashion & Textiles can be seen throughout her work & she sees the finished pieces as being an integral part of the modern interior.
