Kate Van Suddese
BA (hons) Fine Art from Sunderland University
Kate has been painting for over 25 years, using oil on canvas to create her distinctive seascapes. Her works are created in series always linked to her original ‘Sea Senses’ series yet always progressing, through colour and form seeking new ways to capture an elusive element. each series informs the next, creating momentary diversions and differing aspects. Inspiration for her work comes from the dramatic North East coastline, the west coast of Scotland and the Cornish Coastline. – ( The Greenstage Gallery.)
‘In the best of marine painting the sea is not the subject: it is a screen on which the deepest feelings and emotions of the artist are projected. Turner knew this, and so does the Northumberland painter Kate Van Suddese….. Kate through the power of personal experience, has turned it into an emotional catalyst: “A place where we may find a better understanding of ourselves” – Anne Ellis (Uptown Magazine)
