She completed a PhD at RMIT in 2014, and currently supervises creative practice HDR students working in drawing, printmaking, photography and sculptural practice. Through large-scale drawing and printmaking processes, Susanna’s art practice considers mobility, mapping, distance and proximity, and often includes a physical or durational element. Susanna has received several awards including the Linden Prize (VIC); the Burnie Print Prize (TAS), Joondalup Prize (WA) and Bankwest Art Prize (WA) as well as runner up in the Fremantle Print Award (WA). Susanna’s work is included in major collections including the National Gallery of Australia and the Art Gallery of WA.

Kaya. We acknowledge the Whadjuk People of Boorloo boodja who are the traditional owners of the land where Semaphore is made. We respect their culture, their custodianship, and their continuing contribution to the life of this city and this region. That includes recognising and respecting sovereignty while working in solidarity towards a treaty and supporting ongoing connection to country. That means linguistic rights, economic opportunity, and artistic endeavour. To their Elders, past, present and emerging, we say thanks.
