Then, armed with a do-it-yourself manual and an impressive collection of drills, saws and other tools, Andy, who according to Sue is wonderfully organised and practical, set about converting the studio. The conversion was given top priority as once completed it allowed Sue to continue with her work. As man, or woman, cannot live on simply enthusiasm alone, when the studio was finished they moved down a floor to start work on the kitchen and dining room. The existing maple kitchen units, which had survived a decade of wear and tear extremely well, were sanded and re-oiled. The design and colours used throughout the flat are very Sue Williams. DINING TABLES FOR SMALL SPACES Many of the sharp, hot pastels are shades that appear frequently in her work. She is happy to experiment and is quite prepared to paint something several times in order to achieve just the right tone. Lime greens and mustard yellows are accented with soft lilac, cool aquamarine and fresh pink. To balance this bombardment of colour Sue has also used cool creams and beige.
