Sarah lives in Stamford and paints from her garden studio. She is a member of Welland Valley Art Society and regularly shows her work at Stamford Arts Centre, both in the main gallery and the anteroom. Sarah usually takes part in Rutland Open Studios each year and visitors are welcome to visit the studio at other times by appointment. Sarah has exhibited with the Royal Institute of Painters in Water Colours in the Mall Galleries, London, had work selected for open art competitions nationally (winning prizes) and her paintings have been included in both The Artist and Leisure Painter magazines.
Sarah says “My paintings are both of and about the landscape and the natural world. They are not literal interpretations of a 'view' but an expression of my experience being in the landscape - whether natural or man-made. I aim to distil the essence of a location and evoke a sense of place which I hope will find a connection with the viewer. I paint almost always in 'mixed media', which is often a combination of acrylic paints, pencil, charcoal, water soluble crayons and oil pastel. I enjoy using expressive brushstrokes, scratches and drawn lines and have a real passion for colour”.
