Sue Graham’s paintings of the coastlines of Norfolk, Cornwall and Devon evoke a feeling of escapism, of solitude, of being alone next to the sea. Painted en plein air throughout the year, Sue’s palette knifed paintings capture her battle with the wind, rain and changing light.
"I walk and explore, to get a feel for the area, weather conditions and the tide before painting. I become completely absorbed, passionate about capturing the immediacy of time and place. In the open air for the day, whatever the weather, engaging and exploring the processes of watching, recording and describing visually”.
Having gained her degree in Fine Art at De Montfort University in 1998, Sue has been lecturing and teaching art in Leicester ever since. She has exhibited extensively in the local area and in Norfolk and is a member of the Leicester Society of Artists.
