Florence, Italy – The Statue of David
My name is Susie Goodall and I am a visual artist based in the Bay of Fires on the beautiful north east coast of Tasmania, the island state of Australia.
I love Scottie dogs, oil paints, wine, typography, living by the sea and, when possible, travelling around the world exploring art galleries. Some of my faves are London’s TATE Modern, the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art in Edinburgh, the NGV in Melbourne and the fabulous MONA in Hobart.
I started drawing from a young age and then fell in love with oil painting in high school thanks to a wonderful art teacher and mentor. After school I gained a variety vocational skills working in office administration for various businesses, until I quit the daily grind to attend art school at the University of Tasmania in Launceston.
I can’t put into words what my time at the UTas School of Visual and Performing Arts meant to me. I met some fabulous people, some of whom are now dear friends, and I was fortunate to be able to study under some amazing lecturers who have inspired me to want to undertake my PhD in the (hopefully) not too distant future.
After looking for a way to combine my admin expertise with my art skills I decided to study graphic design at Foundry Launceston. Ideally, I would love to be a graphic designer by day and painter by night (or should that be the other way around?!)
In the meantime, I will continue to paint – please check out my work on this site. If you have any questions or suggestions, please feel free to send me an e-mail. You can also find me on Facebook and Instagram (via the links below).
