Sarah Wimperis was born into a family with artistic roots that began on the Lizard, Cornwall in 1650 and stretched as far as New Zealand. She studied Fine Art at Falmouth School of Art and graduated with a degree in sculpture. After exhibiting with several galleries including the Portal Gallery in London and illustrating for the BBC and the National Trust, she decided to travel the world, painting all the way, from Russia, Israel and Norway. She lived and taught art in Norway and France finally returning to beloved Cornwall to set up a mural company as well as working as an illustrator while her five children were young.
Sarah has also exhibited with the Mall Galleries, London, the Royal Institute of Painters in Watercolour and the Discerning Eye. She is also the only English artist to have worked on the “Loving Vincent” feature film.
“I am a traditional figurative artist and paint plein air in oils or watercolour. Larger studio paintings are completed using plein air reference either at home in my Cornish studio or on my travels in my lovely mobile studio. I gather painting inspiration through travel and visiting new places. I find myself drawn to domestic subject matter; complex interiors, markets, gardens and am a compulsive sketchbook keeper!”
