About The Artist

Susanne Parker, having previously worked in oils, pen & ink drawings, fabrics, pottery and jewellery, has now uniquely adapted the ancient technique of creating mosaics from small pieces of glass.

Decorative images of birds, animals, flowers, trees and landscapes are combined with imaginative, abstract patterns. The compositions are often based on nature, trying to capture splendid colours and offering a more positive view of our polluted world. The pictures can hang in a window with light from behind or, in the case of the larger landscapes, which include opaque as well as thick patterned and mirror glass, can be placed on a wall, as they do not need background lighting.

All Susanne’s work is made of stained glass pieces cut individually, embedded in cement and framed by lead or wood. She uses this technique because it allows her to cut small detail and to exploit the design of the background cement as well as the colours in the glass. The brittle nature of glass and the hard-edged, clear-cut images suit the artist’s style. Round or S shapes are the hardest to cut because glass tends to break in straight lines or at angles. At times, the pieces are built up into three-dimensional, more experimental compositions, allowing the artist a free range of expression. Each piece of glass is unique because the colours and the cutting of the glass differ in every design.

The sizes of the works vary from 50cm to 1 metre across. Glass is quite an expensive medium. It is manufactured in all colours and textures, either hand-made or by machine. Some glass is particularly costly, especially the reds, because they contain precious metals in their chemical make-up.

A wide variety of glass is available – antique glass with surface bubbles and irregular texture; streaky, cathedral glass with multiple colours; clear rolled glass; flashed glass; Victorian edged glass and many others. Any size of window – Individual designs can be produced on commission.

Susanne has been featured in Homes and Gardens magazine and in various newspaper articles covering local exhibitions. Her largest public commission is the Village Hall front door in Longstock, Hampshire.

Stained Glass Mosaics – Prices and delivery

Prices vary considerably depending on the size, complexity and material of the picture. Also, if it’s a commission, there will be extra time involved to make a design and adapt it to stained glass. Every picture, whatever material, is assembled from individually cut pieces of coloured glass. The glass is obtained from a glass producer and is of varied value, red being extremely expensive, other colours much cheaper. The design may require lots of detail which means many more hours work, so only a general guideline to pricing can be given. This also leaves room for negotiation.

Mosaic Tree (30cm x 45cm) sold for £250 as an example.

About The Artist

I studied fine art for four years at Manchester and Sunderland Colleges of Art, followed by one year at Leeds College of Art ( art teachers' diploma ).
Subseqently, I spent many years teaching Art to A Level in grammar and independent schools, before taking early retirement.

My work is extremely varied, mainly in oils and acrylic, ranging from purely figurative to totally abstract. I tend to work in series, developing an idea, where one painting leads to another, before perhaps moving on to something quite different.

Over the years, I have exhibited in Newcastle on Tyne, Oxford, as well as various venues in Surrey and the paintings shown here represent only a SMALL cross-section of my work.

Not currently a member of a Surrey Art Group or Surrey Art Society.

I welcome any enquiries and will happily e-mail a wide range of images of my work, to any interested party.

About The Artist

Hildegarde was born on the edge of the Kalahari Desert, Northern Cape Province, South Africa.

She studied Social Science at the University of the Orange Free State, but has always been passionately involved in painting. She came to the UK in the “Sixties”, is married with two children, and lives in Surrey where she teaches and paints in her Studio in Molesey.

Hildegarde is primarily a “Colourist”. Her work is much influenced by her roots and she brings warmth and vibrancy into her paintings where with gay abandon uses colour and paint in a way that has been described as, “delightfully sensual”. Whether tackling cluttered Still Lifes of everyday objects, or landscapes of Southern Africa and Europe, she delights in depicting the effects of light and dark. The “Impressionists” and “Scottish Colourists” have had a major influence on her work. Although mainly an oil painter, Hildegarde also uses watercolour and mixed media.

Of Painting as an activity, she says “No matter how demanding painting can sometimes be, it always fills me with a huge sense of satisfaction and joy. In painting I escape into a World of my own, where I can revel in creating images with colour, shape and form.”

Galleries and Exhibitions

Hildegarde has sold to clients world-wide. Her paintings are represented by Art Galleries in South Africa and London. Her work is regularly exhibited with the Chelsea Art Society, and has been represented at the Affordable Art, and Battersea Art Fairs . In September 2007 she was Guest Artist for “The Family Law in Partnership”, Bedford Chambers, Covent Garden, London, and exhibited in May 2008 hanging at the Royal British Artists Exhibition at the Mall Galleries, London. One of her works, “Daffodils” was recently auctioned at the Royal Academy on behalf of Marie Curie Cancer Research.

Painting Commissions

Hildegarde undertakes commissions for Still Lifes incorporating client’s colour schemes and precious possessions as well as painting private homes and gardens.

Art Talks & Demonstrations / Art Tutor - Including Cruise Liners

Hildegarde regularly runs painting workshops and demonstrations for a number of Art Societies and exhibits both in South Africa and England. She has sold to clients world-wide. For the last four years Hildegarde has been a watercolour instructor for major Cruise Lines.
