British born artist Su Keates moved to Whanganui from Wellington, in 2018 and is loving being a part of the art scene there. Su has used a wide variety of mediums in her work over the course of her life and draws inspiration from nature. Currently she is exploring the medium of vitreous (glass) enamel and using mathematical shapes to create, bolder, more stylistic pieces.
Based in Whanganui, New Zealand, her aesthetic is inspired by the bold, beautiful, and raw natural environment which surrounds her and provides for an amazing lifestyle. Her glass blowing talent and her passion to share her knowledge has led her to teach in Canada and North America, and exhibit worldwide including Milan, Italy, and New York.
