Sarah lives in Yorkshire, England, with her husband, their two boys, Italian Spinone Coco and Lurcher Albi.
Sarah studied Architecture as a mature student, and following her degree worked in different roles including architecture, garden designs and exhibition design. She has been painting and drawing full time for the past four years.
Known best for her drawings and paintings of dogs, Sarah has exhibited at Chester Arts Fair, Childwickbury Arts Fair and Bankside Gallery, London as part of the RWS Contemporary Watercolours Exhibition.
Sarah’s preferred medium is watercolour. Working quickly allows a spontaneous, energetic and immediate response to the subject and she works to preserve that initial sketch, those first marks that begin to define the subject, within several layers of drawing and painting.
She also likes to work with multiple, careful layers, that gradually build up tone and texture and really establish a connection with the subject, after many days of observation and painting.
