About the Tutor
Sue Baker Kenton is a visual artist whose work is rooted in observational drawing. Her images evolve over time in a considered and reflective way, echoed by the processes in which they are rendered: primarily etching and lithography.
Sue is the specialist printmaking tutor for the UAL Foundation Diploma in Art and Design.
