About the artist - Susie Leiper

For Susie the mountain is an inexhaustible source of material, both visual and verbal. Looking both at and into the mountain, Susie paints and writes on everything from vast walls and canvases to small pieces of wood and artist books. Painting is sometimes layered with calligraphic renderings of poetry, in the Chinese vein. Susie lives and works in Edinburgh, as both painter and calligrapher. She exhibits widely, has won several awards and her work is in many renowned collections including the National Library of Scotland, the British Museum and the Royal Collection.
