Sue Banting Artist



About Me...



Welcome to my website - 

I am an experienced artist who lives in Purbrook, Hampshire, and specialises in realism using acrylics.  I love to paint seascapes, landscapes, animals and beloved pets.  I focus on contrasts of light and dark and create atmospheric paintings.  

The artistic influence came from my great grandmother, who loved painting roses.  I used to paint roses using oil paint, but I fell in love with acrylic after attending art classes and workshops, in preparation for my retirement in 2018.  I did not see retirement as an end to my work life, but a start to my art career.  

In looking through my portfolio you should be able to see the diversity within, as it not only includes unique paintings from my own captured moments, but also contains some of the projects I completed during my earlier art workshops.

Come and see my latest painting of a female American Kestrel which is being exhibited at the Southern Nature Art Exhibition to be held at Rookesbury Park, P017 6HT on 25-28 August 2023 at 10.00 am - 17.00 pm


I welcome commissions, and are currently working on some right now.
