Sue Macartney Snape was born in Tanzania, grew up in Australia and came to London in 1980 where she has worked as an artist ever since. She is probably best known for her Social Stereotypes that feature weekly in the Saturday Telegraph Magazine but she has also had a number of sell-out exhibitions and has undertaken important commissions for institutions such as Glyndebourne and The Metropolitan Opera. Sue’s kindly but razor sharp interpretations of our idiosyncrasies are hugely funny and have earned her a wide following of collectors.
“Sue belongs to a tradition that runs from William Hogarth to Ronald Searle” Gyles Brandreth
“Sue is a master of caricature… her paintings illustrate the English social scene more brilliantly and with greater accuracy than those of any other painter today”. John Julius Norwich.
