Artworks - Sue Macartney-Snape
Sue Macartney-Snape was born in Tanzania, brought up in Australia and now lives and paints in London. John Julius Norwich calls her a "master of caricature" and says her paintings "illustrate the English social scene more brilliantly and with greater accuracy than those of any other painter working today."
For the past 14 years she has illustrated The Telegraph Magazine's 'Social Stereotypes' column. Nine books of her original stereotypes have been published since 1994 and hundreds of thousands of copies have been sold.
Sue won the 2004 Pont Award for drawing the British character and has been acclaimed as the Wodehouse of art.
Ned Sherrin wrote in 2004 "Sue Macartney-Snape's observation suggests that she has eyes on stalks". Gyles Brandreth wrote in 2007 "Sue Macartney- Snape belongs to a tradition that runs from William Hogarth to Ronald Searle".
Sue has held several sell-out exhibitions of her work at leading London galleries and the Sloane Club.
