Sue Lawson is an established landscape painter who takes inspiration from her time spent in the Dales and the Moors of North Yorkshire. 


Shortlisted for the Whitworth Young Contemporaries as a student, she graduated with BA (Hons) Fine Art in Manchester in 1991.


Significant solo exhibitions include
The Bowes Museum : "On the Horizon, Out of Reach";
National Trusts, Nunnington Hall: "If I have left, I Remain in the Country";
And at Brantwood, the home of John Ruskin in Coniston:  "Maybe You Have Been Here"


Group exhibitions include the Lynn Painter-Stainer 2013 Prize Exhibition in London as well as other northern galleries and museums.


Discussing¬† her work Sue says : “I need isolation and seclusion to work and walking in the wild northern landscape with its changing light constantly inspires my work. Trees and skies, particularly at night time and last light are subjects I return to. Walking outdoors is one of the last things that remain free and it helps me to think and generate ideas for new works.”
