Damien Hirst is one of the most successful British artists working today. His website reflects his success, as it is is a very professional designed website, with many different features, such as an up to date news bar tab, keeping viewers up to date information on Hirst's projects. But I find the whole thing detracts from the work itself. There is too much going on in the website, even though it is well designed, it is more like a designer retail website rather than an artists portfolio.

An artist that has always inspired me over the last two years in Susan Collis. Her work draws you in to the details, and there is so much work and time put into her work that is so subtle, you could miss it entirely.

Susan Collis doesn't have her own website, but she has a profile on the Seventeen Gallery website who represent her and put on her exhibitions. It is straight forward layout, with no none sense. There is a brief description about her background and her work. Then there are large clear photographs of her work on the page you can scroll down through, which are ordered chronologically so you can see her ideas develop. I like how straight forward her profile page is, it puts the focus on the work itself.
