Recognised as one of South Africa’s foremost Wildlife Animal Watercolour Artist, Sue Dickinson’s work is highly regarded and collected the world over.

"There is no room for error with watercolour – once it is on the paper, it is almost impossible to remove. I work carefully and accurately, but I'm not attempting to reproduce reality so I want to work fairly loosely too. It is important for the viewer to be able to see the mark of the artist, the journey I have taken on the page."
The composition of each artwork is critical, based upon the law of proportion known as the "Golden Mean" - an aesthetic principle used by the ancient Greeks. Focusing on the animal itself, Sue’s experience has taught her that "what you leave out is just as important as what you put in". To this end, you will notice the purposeful and very impactful negative space surrounding each of her artworks. Her stark, clean images concentrate exclusively on the animal and convey the wide-open spaces of Africa.
