Born and raised in Cornwall, Sarah relocated to Brighton as a teenager where she embarked upon a career as a performer, which included touring around the world as one of the original founding performers of the international hit show Stomp.
Working with a range of professional actors and musicians, Sarah enjoyed an eclectic mix of stage, TV and film performances and after almost thirty years away from her beloved Cornwall, returned home to be with her family.
Painting fast became a new creative outlet, her experimental use of oils and use of colour saw an emerging aesthetic that uniquely captures both the look and feel of the Cornish land- and seascapes that she so adores.
Continually honing her technical understanding of the movement of oil paint and how colour dries through a combination of formal study and free painting, Sarah has completely immersed herself in the process. A year-long figure drawing course at the esteemed Newlyn School of Art, included landscape painting with artists Paul Lewin, Maggie O’Brien, Imogen Bone and an intensive study with Cornish artist, Amanda Hoskin, have all contributed to Sarah’s ever-evolving artistry.
“I am absolutely in love with the process of making a picture,” Sarah explains.
“I try to portray my emotions of energy from the Cornish landscape while conveying the sense of place and magic of my surrounds.”
