Her photographic portraits of the moor’s artisans formed solo exhibitions at the prestigious Devon Guild of Craftsmen and Dartmoor National Park's main visitor centre in 2017. The trail was featured BBC Countryfile and was highly acclaimed in The Guardian, Lonely Planet Traveller and Telegraph Travel, who named it one of the UK's best travel experiences of 2017. The trail won 'UK's Best New Tourism Project' by the British Guild of Travel Writers, and Suzy was awarded the Heritage Crafts Association's Volunteer Award for her work on it.
Suzy welcomes commissions and ideas for collaborations.
