Hone-ing Her Art

At Rickshaw we love to encourage emerging artists, especially local ones, so when a lovely lady came into the shop - almost apologetically - with a range of cards to offer, I was delighted.  Sue Hone's bold, whimsical style appealed immediately and her journey to discovering her inner artist is wonderful!  In her own words, here is what Sue has to say:

"A friend recently told me that painting for her was a peaceful occupation, for me, it's not.  Painting for me is almost like giving birth and can be at times a long and painful process, but ultimately, it is a labour of love.  Invariably, as with birth, the finished product makes all the effort worthwhile.

I started painting in my early 60s and with my first two paintings I achieved a childhood ambition of having them accepted for the Ferens (Hull) Open Art Exhibition in 2018, and a further one in 2019.  That gave me the confidence to bare my soul and let others see my work.  I have had no formal training except for a local six week art course, where my biggest lesson learnt was to keep going!  I love using acrylics and find the colours and texture suit my style.  I am obsessed with painting coastal areas and revel in simplicity, form and glorious colour."

Truly a woman after my own heart!  Her cards and prints are now available at Rickshaw - click here to see the full range.
