The artworks Sue makes are largely mixed-media assemblages, made in her garden studio space, which she describes as ‘a womb, a suspended space that inspires as the light moves through it from dawn to dusk.

The proximity of her studio to her home means that work and living spaces tend to weave together in the “life lines” that entitle this article about her beautiful home.

See Sue Pam-Grant’s work on show at Gallery MOMO, and look out for her interdisciplinary collaboration coming up at the Dance Factory at the end of October.
