Sue Read, Cornish artist in the outside studio

An idyllic space, the barn studio is just a mile outside of Bude on the farm where I was born; so a special place to me. With space to work on several projects, display and sell work and cards too, it is the perfect workspace and gallery.

2016 was an epic year with followers and buyers growing in numbers. I will be participating in Cornwall Open Studios at the end of May again and have a solo exhibition in August at The Willoughby Gallery, Bude.

Massively inspired by the work of Joan Eardley who’s exhibition I visited in Edinburgh in December (blog post here) I have plans to be painting outside more and more.

So, be sure to keep up to date with news from the studio by signing up to my newsletter here.

Visitors are welcome but please give me a call first as I may be out painting, sketching and photographing for new ideas and projects  or if the tide is right….in the sea!




“I love Sue’s paintings. I am drawn to them because they are so familiar to me. I love the beach and sea paintings as much as I love her winter paintings. They are so atmospheric.”

Jill Stein, Padstow

“Sue’s work is so identifiable as Cornwall, she picks up the colours of our North Cornish Coast brilliantly, and on top of that she’s an absolute pleasure to deal with, nothing is too much trouble!”

Cathryn Bishop, Cornish Interiors
