Sue describes her work as follows:
“The inspiration for my artwork came from a Dutch artist by the name of M.C. Escher. I was mesmerized when I saw some of his works which revolved around optical illusions with mathematical grids. I wanted to turn the optical illusion of the three dimensions into reality, so I experimented with organic matters and binders to create this third dimension. I realized that this could be the beginning of a new genre.
While visiting Gore Park to photograph the fountain, I noticed a few decrepit buildings near the corner of King and James streets. Curiosity got the better of me and I picked up a copy of Vanished Hamilton, a local historical book about buildings which had been demolished in Hamilton. This took me on an quest to resurrect some of the beautiful architecture which had disappeared. I had to rethink traditional painting techniques to achieve the 3D effect.”
