"Himalayan Balsam" by Susie Monnington

I grew up on a farm near Lewes and my parents and grandparents farmed the Lewes Brooks. It was when I started canoeing that I got a totally different perspective on something so familiar.

I’ve now spent a few years paddling, walking and drawing up in the “Wilderness”, closely observing the river’s mood changes and how it completely alters character through different times of day, weather and seasons. It is these shifts in mood that I have tried to capture through the play of colour and light. What has resulted is an intimate collection of oil paintings reflecting a year of change on the Ouse: The stillness of winter, the chaos of spring, the intensity of high summer.
