Sue Read – Cornwall Seascapes

About Me

Sue Read, Cornish Artist at Crooklets beach

Cornwall is my native home.  My Cornwall seascapes and paintings of the coast are full of moving skies, waves and colour.  My barn studio in North Cornwall is on the farm which has been in my family since the early 1900’s.

There is a sense of adventure in my work interspersed with spaces of calm reflected by my life on the North Cornish coast. I love to swim, take my ply board in the waves, walk the wildness of a winter’s storm, soak in the stillness of a spring dawn and the solitude of the end of the day.

Working with a variety of media including oils and a wide range of techniques including sanding and glazing,  I respond to nature and the local landscape carved by the waves and weather using sketches and through memory.

In the studio, I have the space to explore the paint and it’s potential further.  Some paintings take some time to achieve the gravity and intimacy I require as my  art practice progresses.

Studio Visits

A part of me stays with my paintings forever so I like to meet people who are looking to purchase a piece of art. You are welcome to my studio by appointment. Please give me a call and get exclusive first viewings of my Cornwall seascapes.  I also have portfolio books to view for print orders .   Here is a link to the wonderful place I call home   Wooda Farm.
