Suki Wapshott is a painter of sensuous landscapes and abstract works, inspired by both her love of poetry and the beauty of Cornwall’s rugged North Coast. Suki read English at Oxford University before settling in Cornwall and becoming a painter. Each day she walks the coast near her home in Polzeath, carrying with her an internal library of her favourite poetry, before returning to her studio and committing her appreciation of Cornwall’s natural splendour, and power of expressive language, to canvas. Poetic interpretation, depth of human feeling, and the particular emotion of ‘place’ are central to Suki’s painting, as is her admiration for the art of Da Vinci, Caravaggio, Rembrandt, Turner, Renoir, Braques and Picasso, and the poetry of John Donne, William Yeats, Ted Hughes, John Milton, Gerard Manley Hopkins, Seamus Heaney and Shakespeare


Suki’s work is exhibited at Whitewater Gallery, Polzeath. To discuss individual works or to arrange a private consultation please contact
