Vale Suzanne Bellamy. Feminist, Artist, Writer, Scholar, Activist.

It was with sadness that Rochford Street Review heard of the death of Suzanne Bellamy on Monday 20 June. Suzanne was one of those rare people, full of life, action and history.

Suzanne was a friend and supporter of Rochford Street Review and appeared on our pages a number of times over the years. In 2019 (Issue 27) Suzanne was our Featured Artist.
