I have made visual artworks since childhood. In adulthood I’ve also begun writing. I’ve worked in different media, including relief printmaking (linocuts and woodcuts), painting, fibre arts and drawing. On Arts of May, I show some of my work, past and present and works by artists I love. And I talk about the process of making the works. This sometimes includes the solace of nature and beautiful places I’ve travelled to that support my life and work.
I’ve worked under the different names I’ve had during my life. My early prints and some early paintings are mostly under my birth name, Susan Barsel, or two versions of my former married name: Susan Herman and Susan Barsel-Herman. In the 1990s, I took the name Lily Susan May which is my name today. A Lily by any other name…..
