Suzanne Hobbs is an award winning Environmental Artist,  Events Manager & Qualified Teacher based in North Devon.  Her most famous works are re-inforced concrete sculptures including the 2009 "Bunker" now permanently installed at Broomhill sculpture gardens, which won the 2009 UK National Sculpture award. Other noteable installations include "Cutlery Ball" (2007) "4 Missed Meals" (2008) and "Supermarket Trolleys" (2009). Her work reflects her response to environmental degradation brought about by human activity, particularly the threat of climate change. Suzanne's passion for the natural environment is the product of working and living at sea interspersed with periods of growing food and trees on Organic farms for her family. In the early 1990s she sailed across the Pacific with her growing family. Returning to a remote Organic farm in Devon with new inspiration, she threw herself into her art whilst producing and growing food for the farm catering & events business. She developed a passion for food and is an accomplished commercial caterer & nutritional specialist. Following her recognition as an artist, and when not catering & co-skippering aboard Hecate, she  has dedicated her time to teaching and passing on her knowledge to the next generation.
