Susan hurrell-fieldes

i am a printmaker.....initially self taught....my printmaking education is 

gained from New York where i work and study every year.

perhaps the main influence on my work is the street art in New 

York.........the marks on the footpaths and roads.....the graffiti.......the 

dilapidated billboards......the energy and rawness i experience there.

my work is abstract

mark making and line the dominant feature

the colour pallet purposely limited

i have exhibited widely....both in New Zealand and overseas.....Australia, 

north America, France, Japan, Hawaii, Spain, Bulgaria

my work currently can be seen in galleries (in New Zealand) in 

Auckland, Martinborough,Waipawa, Nelson, Christchurch, Geraldine and 

Christchurch

i have taught widely in New Zealand....and assisted at workshops in Nth 

America

i have printed for artists in NZ and North America

i have organised overseas artists to come to NZ to teach and 

exhibit........from Australia, from USA and
