Duet - David Hannington and Sue Thomson

06 April 2018 - 08 May 2018

The two artists met when they worked together in a Sunderland Primary School in the 1980’s.   They share a love of arts and crafts and have re-united to present this Exhibition.

David was born in Sunderland, studied Education in Bristol and eventually returned to his home town.   Art has always been important to him, and he enjoys painting, photography and other crafts, although he has spent all his professional life in Education.

Since retiring David has devoted a lot of his leisure time to painting in watercolour.   He also enjoys travelling and the places he has visited have inspired his paintings.

Sue came to college in Sunderland and never went home.   Throughout her career and in retirement Sue has continued to develop her interest in figures, water and nature. She has been a member of a life drawing group in Hexham since 2011 working with a variety of media to depict her favourite life models. She works with Batik and lino prints and bases her work on sketches made in situ.
