Roman wine-making scene
Oil on canvas, 2.8m x 1.2m
Employed as a member of a four person painting team, Su painted this classical style mural which was one of a larger set of domestic scenes.
The paintings were commissioned for the new Barton Square dome at The Trafford Centre in Manchester.
Here, Su's painting can be seen in the studio, and then in situ at the Trafford Centre after installation using the marouflage technique.

Situated along the footpath off Park Street and continuing on the bridge over the A41.

Children's Bedroom Mural
Private client commission , Sheffield UK
W60cm x H85cm
A playful blending of 2D and 3D, this baby orangutan mural was painted in acrylic directly onto the wall. The faux banana she is reaching for is in fact a lightpull and was modified and installed by Su to accompany the painting.
Commercial Commission, Derbyshire
Su worked as second painter to the project manager, creating a skyscape on two ceilings, replete with vividly colourful parrots.
Kitchen Mural and Makeover
Private client, Herefordshire
The entire farmhouse kitchen and dining area was completely revamped by Su to freshen up the overall look and give it a more contemporary feel.
Handcrafted cupboards and drawer units were repainted with Farrow and Ball's 'Down Pipe' in Estate Eggshell. Burns and scratches in the worktop were sanded, filled and then painted to disguise the repair, before the whole surface was re-oiled. For the finishing touch, a mural of two hanging planters was added to embellish a blank wall and create a feature to lend balance to the general distribution of colour. The patterns on the planters were designed to echo the patterns on the existing tiles and to tie in with the new colour scheme.

Models and 3D props
A handmade exhibition piece incorporating replicas of playground equipment manufactured by Richter Spielgeräte and distributed worldwide by Timberplay.
The various play elements were set in a sand and grass environment with tropical planting to give a middle-eastern feel. The overall look was one of the play area having just been used, e.g. hollows in the sand where tiny bottoms may have landed; just-pumped water cascading down the guttering; divots in the sand made by tiny running feet...
This diorama was then set in a perspex and oak display case, ready to travel to national exhibition events up and down the UK. The dimensions of the entire model matched Summer Playspace Diorama (below) so that they could be interchanged on plinths or exhibited together if required.
