Born in Scarborough – 1957, my background is in graphic and display design. Having originally studied at Art College for three years, obtaining great success!
Having worked in some challenging and highly creative jobs, I’ve gained some fantastic experiences.
Being a hard working individual who looks for challenges and goals in life, I enrolled on a BA (Hons) Fine Art for Design course. It was a very positive and exciting time for me in more ways than one. This course was for me, a stepping-stone to fulfilling my future ambitions. Discovering that I have developed greatly over the past three years, my enthusiasm for striving into success and fulfilment is insatiable.
My past experiences in life and work have given me excellent grounding to achieve my ambition of gaining the BA (Hons) in Fine Art for Design. Using my individuality and knowledge as a foundation, I have attained the success and individuality of my working practice.

Sue Skitt BA (Hons) Fine Art for Design.
The work aims to juxtapose the fresh beauty of new life with the decaying beauty of a passing life through a series of painterly photographic still life sets, fruit, meat and food; objects are a vital feature and inspiration to the work. I see them as vessels of sentiment.
The painterly photographic still life swims in and out of beauty and repulsion to create unease with in the viewer.
I want to involve the viewer directly in the work seducing them initially then repelling them slightly.
The work draws from various philosophical strands associated with Vanitas art.
It uses classical themes and symbolic objects from the fast repertoire, developed by
the vanitas masters of the Baroque period.
In order to fully appreciate a vanitas painting each iconic element has to be careful
examined and various potential symbolic meaning must be propererly ascertained
with in the broader content of the piece as well as in relation to the surrounding elements.
