Suba Irish Watercolours
Susan Basler is a watercolour artist based on a small organic holding, in south Sligo overlooking the Windy Gap along the Ox Mountains.
Having always had an interest in textiles Susan completed her degree in BA Honours Degree in Design in Textiles and after graduating set up her studio in 2014. Susan's work is inspired by nature and the materials she uses. Having spent some time honing her craft, she has developed her own technique and style.
Inspired by the natural world she creates hand-drawn and painted artwork from her own photography. 'I spend a lot of my spare time outdoors and my camera lets me capture the seed that later becomes a design collection.' From the artwork design ideas are developed and then brought to life by sampling and then making the final piece.
