Sue Green Biography

Sue spent three years of her childhood in Africa and returned to England at the age of 18. The injustices and poverty she witnessed left her with a strong moral standing and a belief in equal opportunities for all. Sue endorses that everyone deserves a “chance” to achieve their true potential; by changing attitudes and by adopting a positive viewpoint, possibilities become endless. This ethos followed her into her teaching practice as an Art and Design Lecturer. Sue spent 15 years as an Art Tutor. Most of her time was spent at Liverpool Community college, on the BTEC Foundation course helping students enter University. She also taught on back-to-work schemes, retirement classes and to the homeless, in Liverpool, Wirral and Ireland. Sue is a strong advocate for Life-long-learning and believes that people are never too old to learn.

As the American writer Anthony J. D’Angelo once wrote:

“Develop a passion for learning. If you do, you will never cease to grow”.

Sue believes the Green House project will give the local community the opportunity to avail of many life enriching courses. Through education and interaction with others, such fun can be had, and new skills learnt. Everyone will get a warm welcome and soon feel part of this wonderful organisation.

Sue’s Masters qualification served to secure employment as a New Media Designer and enabled her to exhibit at the United Nations, New York, on behalf of the Chernobyl children’s charity. Sue has featured in various magazines, both as a painter and a web designer.

Sue loves to travel and has also lived in Southern Ireland and Portugal. She is a trained Complementary Therapist and brought these skills to Portugal, where she worked in a hotel in the Algarve, alongside running P.S. Properties, a holiday business.
