S u e   R a p l e y


My paintings are inspired by the natural world, travel, and especially by the sea and coastline environments.  I am fascinated by natural and organic objects, predominantly strong dynamic forms. 

Colour plays an essential role in my paintings.  Through an intuitive use of colour I create intense vivid images, reflecting dream-like qualities.  My work continues to develop - from figurative to exploring more abstract ideas.

I was born and grew up in Cambridge and have settled here with my own family.  A BA (Hons) graduate from Brighton in Art & Design; I am a member of Cambridge Open Studios, and have exhibited in both summer and winter exhibitions from 2006 to 2008.
