In Her Own Words

About her

My friends would describe me as vivacious, warm, caring. I would describe myself as a passionate, questioning person, with a curiosity about life and people. My life to date has revolved around Art & Design. I studied to Masters level in my subject, have spent most of my working life as a university lecturer and also as a textile designer for Mary Quant.
Originally from the West Coast I've spent time living in London, Yorkshire, Cumbria and various places in Scotland. For the past four years I have combined my painting with a part-time job with National Galleries Scotland in Edinburgh. However having recently got a young whippet I'm taking a break from the job.
My artwork reflects my concern with respecting and protecting the natural environment. I like to be outdoors, cliff-top seabird watching and taking daily walks at our local beach Portobello, as well as the beautiful coast of East Lothian. I also very much enjoy the stimulation of the city and what it has to offer. I spend time visiting Scottish islands, also Greece and Italy, hope to visit Japan as love their aesthetic and culture.
I have one 28 year-old daughter living in London.
I’m a big reader and enjoy a range of genres- biography, contemporary fiction, poetry. I would struggle to live without music. I enjoy a visit to the cinema, often the lesser - known films rather than the big blockbusters. I don't watch a huge amount of TV, preferring the radio, but I am partial to a Scandi drama or nature documentary. I am a combination of extrovert and introvert and get my energy from both being with people and some quiet time.

About her ideal match

My sense of humour is one of my best traits and I believe laughter is key to a happy life, along with sensitivity, authenticity and an enquiring mind.
Not frightened of showing your feelings and willing to talk - for me good communication is key in a relationship - to be comfortable in your own skin. Someone who might share my love of the sea and who lives in a way that respects the environment.
If you enjoy stimulating conversation and are ready to embark on a new adventure then I'd love to get to know you.
......to share the simple pleasures of life, perhaps do some travelling together. I look to enrich someone special’s life and get the same back in return. To make a start with good company and see where it goes …

What Her Friends Say

robert said...

Susan is a warm, friendly individual who treasures both moments of creativity, solitude and shared experiences. Having shared two flats with her over the years I can testify that like her beloved dog she is fully house trained. She is an avid reader and painter, who values her creative time, where she can immerse herself in her work.
Whilst valuing her 'me time' ,she also appreciates the joy of shared activities and enjoys the cinema, discovering new cuisines over dinner, and delving into thought-provoking exhibitions. Having someone special to enjoy these experiences with her would make them even more enriching and memorable.
She embraces life with laughter and a curious spirit. Whether she's exchanging stories at a cozy cafe or enjoying a long walk along a beach or through a gallery, she enjoys connecting deeply and authentically.
If you're someone who appreciates art, values meaningful conversations, and delights in cultural adventures, and laughter then I am sure you will create beautiful memories together!
