Sue trained at the Falmouth College of Art in sculpture and then earned an MA in sculpture at the Royal College of Art, London. She was one of the original group of artists who worked together and exhibited together under the name of PALP (Penwith Artist-Led Projects) designed to be site-specific exhibitions of a range of arts and crafts.  Usually these were in the form of conceptual constructions and installations, and began as an annual exhibition in 2000.

The artist is listed as a member of NSA (2011).
