Sue Bridge is a multi disciplinary artist, her career spanning painting, animation and design. She has established herself in Folkestone’s Creative Quarter, relishing the freedom of having a studio where she can work on large canvases with vigour.
2023 has been busy, she has had multiple paintings selected for open calls, sales at Mall Galleries, London, sales at group shows, and at private galleries in Folkestone. She was awarded The Cass Art Prize for 'Most Innovative use of colour' at the Royal Institute of Painters in watercolour. Her current exuberant work is a testimony to her ongoing creativity, authentic, gestural with a love of materials - an exciting contrast to the work on computers in her design career.
2020, her animations were shown at 5 film festivals. She won an award for ‘The Last Egg’ at WRPN Women’s International Film Festival, Delaware US and the Women over fifty film festival (WOFFF) and has twice appeared for Q and A panels for the event.
2019, a painted animation was shown at The Turner Contemporary and The Photographers Gallery, London.
Her work is held in private collections both in the UK, Europe and the United States.
Sue studied Art and Visual Communication at Canterbury and Birmingham City Universities achieving a First class Honours degree in 1985. She was taught hand drawn animation by Bob Godfrey in his Covent Garden studio while at Uni and went on to have a long and successful career spanning 30 years at the BBC
