Last weekend I visited an open studios weekend and came away with a painting. I first noticed Sue Williams A'Court because of her home, which appeared in Elle Deco a few years ago, and her beautiful house and studio had always stayed with me. So when I saw she was involved in my local open studios event and the opportunity arose to go and visit, I jumped at it.
If you know my work you can probably see what I like about hers, the organic forms, recurring egg/pebble motif, the textural canvases and her inspiration by the objects around her. I am such a colour freak but I am also so drawn to this subtle natural palette. Partly why I loved neutrals week so much.
It was so lovely to have a chat with her about all the above and I felt I had to have a souvenir. I was torn between two works but came away with this one:
Thank you for the lovely tour of your home Sue and for being so welcoming.
Here is Sue's website and here's the original Elle Deco piece.
