About the Art

Sarah in studio
Sarah in studio
My speciality is in drawing and painting with watercolour pencils, a fabulously versatile medium which produces pictures that evolve very slowly through layers of colour. The pigment is translucent and the layering produces beautiful and subtle colour mixes. I also use them to add detail to watercolour washes. The fine control of the pencils allows detailed pictures, but I also like to use them in an expressive way as if using brushes. I enjoy finding different ways to apply colour and want to create atmospheric works that portray the essential elements of landscapes.

Some of the original works are still available. These would be supplied mounted and framed. Please get in touch using the contact form or use the email link below to enquire about purchasing an original painting. I will then confirm availability and provide PayPal details.

Prints are of archival quality, digitally reproduced using the Giclée printing process and individually priced. I have provided an approximate image size for each, and most have a small (0.5 - 1 cm) white border around the image. They are supplied in a neutral coloured acid free mount, sealed and ready to frame (please keep out of direct sunlight). Please allow 14 days for delivery for prints, P&P of £4.95 will be added at checkout.

ABOUT THE ARTIST

Having always loved drawing my first steps were to attend Art College to study medical illustration. However life diverted me from the world of art towards a substantial career in the biological sciences.
When I left work to bring up my children, art again proved an irresistible draw within the land and seascapes of rural Essex, where I was living at the time.
I had grown up on the Isle of Wight, and the lure to return inevitably prevailed. I currently live in the West Wight and this is now the main source of my artistic inspiration; from landscapes to tiny natural details of plant, rocks and shells. It is an immense joy to live in an area of such outstanding natural beauty, and being out in all weathers with my dogs provides constant inspiration from the changing colours and light on land and sea.
