SUSAN CLEAVER "What I choose to offer to the viewer"

"Visual Element, the website, was created to share the way I experience color and texture in the world through the art of digital photography."

I was born and raised near the resort town of Queenstown in Central Otago. Consequently during my formative years I was surrounded by the beauty and color of nature in amongst tall mountains, rivers, bush and lakes. I didn't realise what a beautiful part of the world I lived in until I went to live near Tokyo when I was 17. Suddenly I missed the mountains and wide open spaces.

I was always taking photos when the opportunity allowed and in the various photography clubs at school and university, however it was always just an enjoyable 'hobby'. Then came the digital revolution and I bought my first digital camera together with an underwater housing and a new world was suddenly opened up to me. For a few years I played around with digital photography but only started to get serious when I bought my first digital SLR. Now it has morphed into more than a hobby and has become a way of life. My camera always (almost!) goes with me.

Like most artists I have created things since I was a kid. I never realised that creating things could be such a rewarding career. Now I am determined to create and share with others the things that I see and the 'way' that I experience color and texture through the art of digital photography. I hope you enjoy my work as much as I have enjoyed the process of creating it.
