susan-isabel-dacre-frame-canvas-processed-TFrom the time they met at art school, Annie and Susan were close friends, living, studying, travelling and sharing studios together in Britain and on the continent. One of Annie’s finest paintings is of her friend.

As with Annie, Susan’s works were not collected by major galleries and only twenty-six are known of today (all below), some in galleries and some from auction sales. She shows a gift for both landscape and portrait work, but never (as far as is known) painted ‘symbolist’ works like Annie.
