Artist Statement: About 'Moon Rising Over Sheep'

"We have bought a property in Scotland and last year spent time there in the summer. The property is actually derelict, on a croft on an island. The light quality up there is different, probably because of the sea. At 10 pm there is still loads of light.

Walking home after a meal out we came across these sheep who were clearly on a  mission. The fence posts lead the viewer into the picture."

About Sue Graham

I can barely remember a time when I didn’t paint, or wasn’t thinking about painting. I have had various other ‘real’ jobs; PR, Retail Management, Special Events. Somehow though my heart was never in them and I’m not sure I was ever truly good at them. 

Ideas for paintings keep on coming. Sometimes I worry the well of creativity will run dry… but so far every time I go there I am able to bring something back. There is an endless variety of inspiration in the world.

My working style is quite chaotic, usually launching straight into a painting with an idea in my head and seeing where that takes me. There then follows a period of ‘retrenchment’; lots of adjusting and assessing. And sometimes things are scrapped. Some paintings come fast and some emerge through a more convoluted process.

Over the years I have received so much encouragement from friends and, touchingly, from random strangers too. It means a lot to me, so a big ‘thank you’ to you all. Somebody once asked me to reflect on why it is that I paint: the question has sat with me for years but I think the answer is this: to communicate feelings and ideas and to be accepted for who I am.
