Susan Chancellor graduated with a practice-led PhD in Visual Art at the Australian National University in 2018. Susan is essentially a painter, although printmaking and drawing are part of her practice and in recent years the monotype has been the focus of her work.
Based on the Far South Coast of NSW, Susan explores themes of time space and memory through lived experiences such as in family life, nature, interior and exterior spaces. Formerly a physiotherapist, Susan began exhibiting in 2003 and since then has held twelve solo exhibitions and taken part in many group exhibitions. She has been selected as a finalist in twenty curated art prizes, winning a number of awards including both the Basil Sellers Prize at Moruya and the Bega Valley Art Award in 2014. Her work is held in the permanent collections of the ACT Legislative Assembly and Basil Sellers as well as in private collections.
