Suzanne Smith is well known for her colourful artwork, all drawn by hand using graphite pencils to create stand out pieces while Hannah Garnham uses rich oil paint to create pieces that resonate with emotional states including some uneasy topics such as the isolation and social withdrawal suffered by many over the last two years.
