Sue Prince Artist – Telling Stories of people and their places

Contemporary British folk artist creating folk art paintings in traditional egg tempera (inspired by Swedish folk art)- it’s like folk music only paint! On an organic farm in the Peak District National Park UK.

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.

Community folk art projects have become an important part of her work.  From a Swedish Saga with 25 participants to the history of Ashbourne with over 170 participants, she uses folk art to empower groups and communities to tell their own shared stories.  The resultant art works become a treasured heirloom for the communities.

Sue is based at her family’s organic dairy farm in the southern Peak District National Park where they also offer three award winning holiday cottages and an events venue.
