Meet Sue Rapley from Sue Rapley Art

Meet Sue Rapley from Sue Rapley Art

Sue is a contemporary artist, and her work is inspired by the wild beauty of the natural landscape which she believes brings nourishment, joy, and peace to our lives. She works from her beautiful light-filled garden studio, just outside the historic city of Cambridge where she lives with her husband and two border terriers. We talked to Sue about her path to becoming a self-employed artist and a pivotal time in her business when she discovered her signature style. She shares with us how nature inspires her, the process of conveying this inspiration on to the canvas and how it’s the variety in her creative practice that fulfills her the most.
