How milking her brother's herd inspired Sue Moffitt to paint portraits of cows
Sue Moffit’s brother is a farmer in Northumberland. His sister was drafted in to help with the milking and it was during her hours in the milking parlour that she began to find artistic inspiration in the herd. She started painting life size images of the cows and then focussed on huge canvases, featuring mainly the heads and shoulders of cattle. That was ten years ago. She now has a thriving rural gallery, and her work has been on sale both in the UK and in the United States. Caz Graham went to meet her in Hexham, alongside the cows who proved to be very chummy indeed.
