Internationally exhibited and multi award-winning artist Sue Hibbert examines the urban condition through inventive watercolour media. Hibbert subverts traditional impressionism in the urban context, offering fragmented shards of form and image which, according to the art critic Ted Snell, exhibits a “brevity and bravura … depict(ing) the movement of light and dynamism”.

Art is a reflection of life. Blessed are those who find joy in the simple and beauty in the ordinary. I find immense joy in the process of creating. I love to paint from life and sketch on location, capturing fleeting moments for posterity. I like to paint portraits of people, places, plants and animals. I try to capture not just the likeness but the essence of my subjects. I tend to use a limited palette to achieve harmony in my work.
