My name is Sue Rose and I live in Tunbridge Wells in Kent which is about 40 miles from London.
I started my life in design in 1980 when my sister asked me to make her a quilted jacket. I remember it was a patchwork jacket made from purple, mauve and cream design squares and it was just fabulous! The colours inspired me to go on and study for an A Level in art and Design which I did through the Adult Education Centre in Fareham, Hampshire (I was living in Gosport at the time).
Because of this course I became interested in women artists and their part in the history of art and so I joined up for Arts Foundation Course with the Open University. Here, "Arts" also included music, philosophy, art and literature.
I then studied for my BA in Art History and then I progressed to working towards my MA in Jewish/Christian Relations. (Cambridge) ("Why?" I hear you ask!)? Well, when I looked at Christian paintings something always seemed wrong to me but I didn't understand what it was - I needed to learn and understand. Even though I am not a religious person myself I knew I had to explore the origins of Christianity in order to "read" and understand the meaning within Christian paintings.
Back in the 80s I also started jewellery making and this has stayed with me all the way through and in September 2007 I attended a short course on silversmithing.
My own work http://www.etsy.com/shop/SusanRoseDesigns is influenced by all I have learned along the way.
As you will see from this website, I sell vintage cabochons. Please contact me if you have any questions, I am here to help.
Oh, and this is me!
I AM IN THE UK SO I CAN ONLY ACCEPT PAYPAL FROM OVERSEAS CUSTOMERS.
