Su Lesley Fishpool



Sue has long been a popular artist and mentor  to young artists on the peninsula. Her colourful representations of her surroundings have gradually become more abstracted into collage and  emotive colours  and shapes that represent her feelings for the subject. It is these feelings that have become her subject and she is removing  the obvious visual object and trying to let the mind interpret and represent something far deeper. The journey through her painting may take her back to - not the place -  but the experience at the place


Su Lesley Fishpool was born in Melbourne in 1949 and studied art at Caulfield Institute of Technology.


Working for a time as a graphic designer in a Melbourne studio she desired involvement with art education of young people and entered the teaching profession in 1973 leaving in 1989 to spend time on her own work.
Since 1975 Fishpool has lived on the picturesque Mornington Peninsula which has provided an abundance of imagery for her work.

Painting the sea and coastline in nature's many moods is a constant challenge and fascination. Fishpool prefers working on prepared textured surfaces, such as canvas or rag paper, in a wide range of media including acrylic paint, pastel, charcoal, oil sticks gold and other metallic paints.
Su's paintings are represented in private and corporate collections in Australia and the USA.
