Cornish artist Sue Read is inspired by moving skies and the various moods of the Atlantic ocean.
Working in a lofty barn studio in a stunning location, Sue creates large seascapes and coastscapes in various media.
My work represents all that is beautiful but also raw about the coast of North Cornwall as I create conversations in paint. ”
Painting the coast often starts by working outdoors. Inks and bamboo pens give structure and tone to loose sketches as colour memories are explored on the canvas back in the studio. A very intuitive process led by the paint allowing the image to appear giving it an vibrant energy of it’s own.
A true Cornish Artist
Sue has established her place on the Cornish art scene as a true Cornish artist with endorsements from the likes of Jill Stein. Six successful solo shows have included ‘Mordros, the sound of the Sea’, ‘Colours of a Tangled Coastline’ and ‘The View from the Shore’
Working with interior designers and hotels on high end projects within Cornwall, Sue takes also commissions working very closely with clients as well as many homeowners in North Cornwall and further afield.
Sue is an active part of the #cruelandcurious ; an art collective pop up show held in conjunction with the National Trust and also a North Cornwall Makers group called ‘Ingenious Pursuits‘, a collective of furniture makers, potters and artists.
