Suzanne Kemplay

Suzanne is a contemporary Scottish Still Life and Portrait artist. She grew up in Edinburgh in an environment that surrounded her in art. Her parents were independent dealers in 20th century Scottish Art, specialising in the work of the Edinburgh Group which included her Grandfather, Eric H M Robertson (1887-1941) and his first wife Cecile Walton (1891-1956).

Suzanne graduated from Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art in 1988 with a BA (Hons) degree in Drawing & Painting. On leaving college, she set up a studio painting commissioned portraits.
