Sue Prince is a contemporary British folk artist creating narrative paintings in traditional egg tempera (inspired by Swedish folk art) – it’s like folk music only paint!
Sue tells stories, responding to current events, celebrating rural life and commenting on our society. She makes her own egg tempera paint, a technique learned in Sweden where she has helped revive this form in its native place. For her, living on her family’s organic farm, this art form is as natural and organic as she can get. She see the world around her and following in ancient footsteps she interprets what she sees in the way it’s been done for centuries.
Sue loves to walk the hills and valleys around her farm in the Manifold Valley at Ilam. Her current work at the gallery shows her enchantment with the land forms, swirls and grooves made visible in the springtime low evening sun.
Sue will present a series of workshops at the gallery in 2017: An Introduction to Egg Tempera Folk Art Painting. For more details visit our workshops page.
