About the Author:

Jim Pratt is an amateur photographer; a forest research scientist by profession, he has made a photographic record of much of Sue's work over the past 25 years. Sue White-Oakes trained as an industrial designer before taking up sculpture and painting in 1975. She now sculpts in copper using a process akin to silversmithing, and has a passion for representing animal forms in her chosen medium. She exhibits widely and her sculptures are featured in private collections around the world. Her work can be seen at the Lost Gallery in Strathdon, Aberdeenshire.
