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.

    Oh my goodness Sue, I am in awe of your work here, I mean as soon as I opened this up I got chills big time, your skills as a creator though paint really is rich and full of depth and dimension that I don’t see all the time.. I am now in Wow land

  • I can’t believe that I have missed these comments. You have made my day, especially as I am actually struggling with my painting today so thought I would look through my rb collection…and I see your wonderful comments. Thank you so much!

    Thank you for taking me back to near my old home town of Chesterfield Sue. I have seen Froggatt Edge so many times but you have captured it superbly here. I really must travel down and photograph the area again as sadly all my old 35mm photographs were lost some years ago.

  • Thank you so much, how awful losing work, I hate that. You must go back and photograph this amazing area again.
