Sue Trickey is not only an artist but a songwriter too
I am a Gloucestershire artist, living near Robinswood Hill, Gloucester where I have a small garden art studio. I am delighted to be finding time for art again after a busy family life.
I have a strong christian faith and worship at Mariner’s church, Gloucester. My faith has grown over the years and my life a testimony of the healing power of Christ.
As well as art I am a musician and songwriter and perform ( I have produced four Cd’s of original songs and music) and have also written much christian poetry.
Every day I am grateful to God for being alive, I want to honour God in all that I do.I am so grateful for the creative gifts I have been given and am glad to be sharing my art with you.My hope is that through my creativity God may speak to you, maybe in an unexpected way. He is the true creator and the one from whom I draw my strength.
“ Not by might, not by strength but by my spirit, says the Lord” ( Zech 4, vs 6)
I enjoy finding vintage materials to use in my art often sourcing material from vintage bibles, books, music, papers, broken jewellery, gold leaf, metallic papers etc.. I also create 3d effects adding small sculptures made from beads, wire and paper.
I have a strong sense usually of how I should start a new artwork but I never quite know quite how the finished piece will look! It is exciting to be doing this and to watch the art gradually take shape over a period of time. Some pieces are so detailed it can take me six months or more to finish.
