Artist Statement - About 'The Lost Heifer'
"This painting was inspired by a poem written by Austen Clarke.
The poem apparently is all about Irish nationalism but when I heard it being read out loud I only heard the wind through the gap in the hedge, the lowing of the lost cow, the mist and the wet grass where the skylark had lain…."

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.
