Sue Nichol

I paint in oils, my style is free and expressive but I also love very detailed pen and ink work. Edges are my inspiration.

Sue Nichol’s paintings are of places she knows very well and visits over and over again, both literally and imaginatively. She is 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.

Sue finds constant inspiration in the sea in all its moods and it is a subject to which she is frequently drawn, striving always to capture its movement and strength, which she finds both fascinating and frightening.

She works mainly in oils, and revels in the flexibility of this media. Sue uses brushes, fingers, sticks, knives, pens or anything else to hand to make marks on the canvas. She creates texture with various materials, such as sand, paste, even sea-coal, to create the desired effect. Her paintings are a mixture of bold strokes and impasto effects.
