Sue Read’s Art Studio
Be sure to check out Sue Read’s Art Studio here at Wooda Farm Holiday Park, Bude! Sue is part of the Colwill family and has a stunning studio space at the farm. Sue has featured on Rick Stein’s Cornwall and is known for her coastal paintings and large seascapes.
Having grown up on the farm where the studio resides, I actually live with my husband near the beach and have recently become a Nanna. Our two sons live and work in Bude too. Tom is head distiller at The Cornish Distilling Co making rum just outside of Bude and Harry carries on a cornish tradition of Dry Stone Walling.
“Many pieces are started outside, in situ on the beach. Back in the studio, the ideas and memories become part of the conversation I have with paint. After layering loose watery areas of colour over, I will often see something familiar from my memory from which to work, the shape of waves or coastline.
My life is absorbed by a constant process of seeing, recording to memory or paper, ideas and thoughts to be painted or to inform on new pieces of artwork painting the narrative of this part of Cornwall, which is integral to my own story.”
Located on site here at Wooda, Sue’s studio has all her latest work along with prints and cards for sale. Visiting Sue in person is the perfect opportunity to see her latest work and learn more about her processes and allows you to take a bit of Cornwall home with you to remind you and your family of your brillaint Bude Holiday Park stay.
Visitors are always welcome to the studio and Sue is very flexible on visit times. Please text or ring Sue first to ensure she is there 07935100950.
