Sarah Studied at Hornsey and Chelsea Art Schools in the heady days of the late 70’s. She ploughed a lonely landscape furrow amongst the conceptions, installations and abstractions of the time, but some of her student etchings were picked up by Jeremy Maas, and sold at his prestigious Clifford Street gallery.
So, following a stint at the Ecole des Beaux Arts in Aix-en-Provence she continued her landscape painting, and over the years has shown successfully at The New Grafton, Cadogan Contemporary, Art First and Agnews amongst others.
She has work is in the corporate collections of BP, Arco British and AT Kearney, and in a number of distinguished private collections.
Her work has been admired by notable artists such as Sir Kyffin Williams, Maurice Cockrill and Arthur Boyd – she was awarded a residency at the Bundanon Trust.
Painting itself, and especially landscape painting goes in and out of fashion, But Sarah has doggedly continued, in all weathers, to draw inspiration from the landscape that she paints.
I am essentially a landscape artist and have been caring a box of paints around with me for as long as I can remember. The fact that water colour is such a brilliant way to get something down quickly, to shape ideas and organize form with colour. It’s an invaluable medium, for exploring the world visually. I studied, many years ago at Hornsey art school, and have shown my work regularly.
My most recent show is online, of a trip I made to Australia earlier this year . Experiencing that dazzling Australian light and the unique otherness of the bush, was a joy and a challange for any painter.
