Susannah Paterson

I am a Scottish Australian painter, potter living in Sydney’s Northern Beaches. I create vibrant paintings about dream states and symbolic narratives, often evoking comparisons to the work of Marc Chagall. I make a range of ceramics, functional and sculpture, sometimes hand painted with scenes and snippets from the paintings. I am mainly an oil painter, though do make forays into media such as watercolour, inks and drawing.

Online Store


My paintings emerge from a meditative state and deep absorptions - a little like self hypnosis.


I have included here a variety of examples of the things I make. Some of them are sold, and some of them are for sale.

We will never sell your information
