Susan Nethercote is an abstract floral and botanical painter living in Ballarat, Victoria, Australia with her husband and two little girls. She paints in acrylics and mixed media and is deeply inspired by nature and the gardens she encounters both in her local neighbourhood and on her overseas adventures.
Susan’s work is a colourful, contemporary, expressionistic take on the long tradition of botanical art. Her work aims to capture the exquisite feeling of being amongst flowers rather than document nature. Susan sees her painting practice as the way in which she communes with the beauty of the world and the soul of nature.
Susan's work is held in private collections across four continents and also licenses her work to magazines and décor brands globally.
Susan's pieces will be auctioned off at the AGES Annual Scientific Meeting 2023.

She later immigrated to Adelaide where she continued her artistic education, completing a Bachelor Degree in Visual Art (Honours). Her studio practice is based on painting and sculpture. Inspired by the diversity and beauty of nature, her work investigates the depth to which human lives are entwined and connected to the natural environment through subjects of belonging, spirit of place and nature’s vulnerability.
Cristina's pieces will be auctioned off at the AGES Annual Scientific Meeting 2022.
