Susan trained in graphic design and worked in advertising before studying botanical drawing and watercolour painting at the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh. She has exhibited at the Royal Scottish Academy, the Royal Academy of Art’s Summer Exhibition and the Llewellyn Alexander’s Not the Royal Academy. She exhibits at the Majlis Gallery in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, where she teaches Botanical workshops. Susan’s black and white illustrations feature in the Blue Guide Scotland.

Lynda Kettle paints in pastels, watercolours, acrylics and oils, and for this exhibition focuses on the landscapes and seascapes of East Devon. She teaches workshops locally and gives demonstrations to art societies.

Her professional career demanded numerous artistic skills including technical production drawings, model making, perspective sketches, scenic painting and storyboards.
