Suzan Houching


In this book you will find a feast of paintings, characters and stories, all touched with Suzan’s wonderful mix of observation and humour. There are over a hundred acrylic paintings, plus numerous pen and watercolour sketches, showing her lifelong fascination with colour.
      Although part of a large family who were engrossed in farming and running pubs, Suzan preferred to find a quiet place where she could paint. During an art lesson at school, when she was given an extract from Under Milk Wood by Dylan Thomas to read through and illustrate, Suzan found she was absolutely hooked. It was there she discovered her love of painting ordinary people going about their business. Recognising Suzan’s passion and ability, her mother gave her blessing for her to go to art college.
      Leafing through the book, you will see that ‘every picture tells a story’ and every tale that Suzan tells in words and photos gives further insight into the lives of rural Dorset and Hampshire folk over five generations.
      But these are universal stories too – ones that, wherever you live and work and play, you can identify with and smile.

  1. Hannah Gordon

    I found myself being immediately drawn into a wonderful sunny world. Suzan seems to be one of those rare people, just as at home with a pen as with a paint brush. This is a book that you can sit down and read, or one that you can dip into. I shall visit it often and with great pleasure.
