Sue Asbury is a former graphic designer turned painter. Walking distance is a series of landscapes and still lifes inspired by her daily dog walks in and around Bollington, telling a story about place and passing seasons, with an eye for the overlooked and everyday.

A collection of still lifes features weeds and flowers plucked from roadsides and pathways. The titles document the changing seasons and the folk history encoded in place names.

Landscapes are painted with an eye for foreground details set against the larger backdrop – a curiosity shared by her canine companion who is always sniffing the ground in search of food and scents.

Both the still lifes and lanscapes show a graphic designer’s eye for composition and a keen interest in texture – including a preference for scuffed surfaces, scratched lines and rough paint splatters that capture the marks made by ordinary lives on the landscape.
