Sarah is an Edinburgh based painter. She grew up in Galloway (South-West Scotland) surrounded by peaceful woodland, rugged moorland and beautiful coastline. She graduated from Edinburgh University with an M.A.(Hons) in Fine Art in 1999.
Sarah’s inspiration is derived from the magnificent Scottish landscape, particularly the west coast. The recurring themes in her work reflect the dramatic effects of weather on the mountains and shorelines, trees and of course her favourite place, Edinburgh.
The changing light and atmospheric effects have provided endless ideas and she seeks to capture something of that. Sarah’s palette is strongly coloured with a wide tonal range, principally in oils. Her paintings attempt to envelop the viewer in the prevailing atmosphere.
Sarah has exhibited in various galleries in Scotland and the U.K. and has paintings in private collections all over the world.
