#SueCaulfield is a multi talented artist. Currently leading workshops in the Creative & Cultural arts spaces in @princesquayhull Here's Sue's story so far: Sue was born in Portsmouth but settled in Hull at the age of 12. Sue says "I love #Hull ...
as a child I was forever drawing but when I left school and got a job I left drawing behind.
After working in the fish industry for many years I was made redundant age 37. I spent a couple of years doing various office jobs. While doing this, I taught myself some basic digital photography. I have practiced ever since. Subjects I enjoy are the female form or Scenic shots.
At age 38 I started to make #metalsculpture . I completed 2 #HullCollege welding courses and discovered a passion for industrial processes, especially with metal. I enrolled at Hull School of Art & Design on an applied creative 3D design Degree and gained a 2:1.
Over the last eleven years my main practice has been preoccupied mainly by the female form, where I investigate body image, imperfections and challenge the notions of what is deemed beautiful by the media. Although I am currently in the design stages for my first life size male form, which will be a portrayal of Human emotion, through body language.
I have designed and made sets for a small theatre company and also delivered a variety of creative workshops.
Although my Degree is in design, I am very much a maker. I have my own studio where I play with my ever growing collection of power tools and experiment with new materials. My last purchase was a band saw. When I go to a DIY store I’m like a child in a toyshop. I want to touch everything!" Sue has exhibited her sculptures and excellent photographs in Princes Quay.
