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, to China, Russia, Israel and Norway.
After living and teaching art in Norway and France she finally returned to her 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 widely including with the Mall Galleries, London, the Royal Institute of Painters and the Discerning Eye.
Sarah explains: “I am a traditional figurative artist and paint plein air in oil and 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!”
Sarah is also the only English artist to have worked on the “Loving Vincent” feature film. Sarah spent five months in Poland working on the film and in that time, she contributed 788 paintings out of a total of 65,000! Sarah was the only English artist chosen out of 125 artists from all over the world.
