Sue Wood

My name is Sue Wood and I am a nature poet and artist living on the Isle of Skye. I try to capture the essence of Skye through verse, with its changing light, ominous mountains and lonely lochs with their restless tides. While writing my poetry I try to recreate the moods and atmosphere of this amazing island. My art is an extension of my poetry and blends the written word with the visual arts. This also enhances the visual aesthetics of my poetry books, using mixed media.

   The Isle of Skye has dramatic mountains, wild glens and amazing seascapes; it offers a varied wilderness for free spirits. This sensational island changes constantly through the seasons, with wild Atlantic storms, snowy mountains and balmy summer nights with spectacular skies – 

This is my inspiration!

   I have a love of Nature and I am fortunate to have a croft here on Skye, which has a wildflower meadow running along the banks of the river Roskhill. I named the meadow Òran Uisge (Gaelic for song of the water). Òran Uisge is perfect setting for writing and painting.

I write a blog called which is a collection of poems, artwork, videos, sound tracks, photographs and prose. This is a total celebration of Skye and Nature.
