Susan Baird creates poetic paintings that capture the essence of Australian environments. Often created en plein air, her works canvass the vicissitudes of the natural world, springing as much from physical topographies as they do from psychological, emotional and spiritual affiliations.
Baird has been the recipient of various residencies including Bull Bay, Bruny Island (2015), Murray’s Cottage, Hill End, Bathurst Regional Art Gallery (2012) and a finalist in numerous awards including the Calleen Art Award (2019, 2018, 2017, 2016), Paddington Art Prize (2018, 2011, 2010, 2009), Mosman Art Prize (2016, 2015, 2010), Colville Lloyd Rees Art Prize (2013) and the Blake Prize (2011). Her work is held in major national and international collections such as Bathurst Regional Art Gallery, Cowra Regional Art gallery, Artbank, J.B.Were & Son, London, Le Meridien, Vanuatu and Magic Works Miami, Florida, as well as private and corporate collections in Australia, New Zealand and the USA.
Susan Baird has chosen to donate 100% of the proceeds from this work to the NSW RSF - Firefighter Samuel McPaul Family.
Volunteer firefighter Samuel McPaul, a member of Morven Rural Fire Brigade, was tragically killed while on duty at the Green Valley fireground east of Albury NSW. Samuel leaves behind a loving wife, Megan, who is pregnant with their first child, due in May. The NSW RFS has created a dedicated bank account to collect donations. All funds received will be distributed to Samuel’s wife, Megan, to provide for their baby’s future.
