Artist's Biography

Sue Rapley

Sue Rapley is a Cambridge-based artist who has developed an individual style, creating vibrant original paintings inspired by a love of the natural landscape, and further afield to the sea. Working in a variety of media, she creates vivid images capturing the essence of being within the landscape. With an intuitive use of colour and gestural strokes of the palette knife to express movement, her paintings convey to the viewer the ever-changing beauty and vitality of the landscape.

The sea and water continues to be a dominant theme in Sue’s work, drawing inspiration from different locations – the Norfolk coast to Cornish waters and overseas to tropical islands. From many water studies she has produced a collection of more abstract artworks, which explore her response to movement, light and reflections.

Sue is an Art & Design BA (Hons) graduate, and a member of Cambridge Open Studios, and the Cambridge Creative Network. She regularly exhibits at galleries and art events across the region. Sue’s work is available at The Darryl Nantais Gallery, Linton, and various Cambridge shops stock her greeting cards. Sue’s clients include both private and corporate collectors.

As well as producing her own collections of paintings, Sue works on commissioned pieces too.
