A brand new collection of 20 Social Stereotype prints featuring 2 Deluxe prints,
hand-embellished by Sue.
It is with a keen eye and a quick wit that Sue Macartney-Snape makes her very English
observations. The subtle removal of a small bound drawing book from her bag or pocket
would be a signal to the astute passer by. Its withdrawal indicates that she may
have noticed an unusual expression, or an amusing vignette - and is about to record
it with well-pointed precision.
Those glaringly obvious foibles which we and our contemporaries try to hide are presented
by Sue in typically characteristic humour. She hones in on that which makes our country
the uniquely quirky place it is. Rushing about our day to day lives, we may notice
the happy-go-lucky lady cyclist, dog in basket, off to the church luncheon. Indeed,
we may come home to a dear husband or wife, snoring gently in their favourite chair,
cat on lap and dogs sprawled around feet. Sue reopens our eyes to these sights and
allows us to rediscover the quintessential comedy to be found on our very doorstep.
It is Sue’s particular gift that she is able to gently tease us with her observations,
lending her very able hands to reveal the hideous gloriousness of our English Eccentricities.
