ISSUE 84  |  In the Art Studio

A London Artist at Home

We’ve admired the work of artist Sue Williams A’Court for some time now, perhaps because we share her love for organic shapes and pastels. 

Sue Williams A’Court began as an illustrator and morphed into a full-time painter a few years ago. She exhibits her work around the world as well as from her home/studio in London, which she shares with her husband, Andy (an animator), and 12-year-old son Finlay. She draws inspiration from a large collection of art books and magazine cut-outs she has gathered throughout the years, and keeps them close at hand in her studio. If you’re in London and interested in her artwork, stop by the “Summer Exhibition” at the Royal Academy in Piccadilly. For more information, visit Sue Williams A’Court’s website and shop
