Susan Kirkman was originally a physicist in the NHS. On retirement she followed a number of painting and printing courses . She now opens her studio for the Open Studio schemes for both Newbury and Marlborough and exhibits her work both locally and nationally.

Perhaps because of her scientific background, she likes to experiment with different styles and media and enjoys the technical side of printing processes.
