Sue Nichol

I paint in oils, and often use mixed media to create texture in my work. I am inspired by the sea, edges and cobbles.

My paintings are of places I know very well and visit over and over again, both literally and imaginatively. I am attracted to the ‘edges of the land’ including our fabulous and varied coastline as well as the rocky edges to be found throughout the British landscape.

My love of the sea stems from my childhood. I was born in Hartlepool on the North East coast and visited the little fishing village of Staithes often, as I still do today. The fishing cobles to be found on the North East coast serve as my models. They have a unique shape that reflects their Viking heritage, being clinker built with a rounded belly, flat stern and pointed bow. They are a challenge to paint but mine have all been pronounced sea worthy by the local fishermen. A great compliment indeed.

I find constant inspiration in the sea in all its moods.
