Sara graduated from West Surrey College of Art and Design in the late 1970s and went on to complete a 'Post Graduate Certificate in Art and Design Education' in 1980. Sara became involved in the London animation scene and freelanced for many of the leading animation studios producing commericals, TV idents and films before setting up an animation company with her partner and husband, Simon. After many years of producing award winning children's animated TV series such as 'Wolves Witches and Giants', 'Grizzly Tales' and 'Binka', Sara returned to her fine art roots and in 2007 gained an MA in Art and Design.
Sara has lived and worked in Devon for over 20 years and is drawn to the remote beauty of the landscape and coast. Her work is an intuitive response to this environment, in particular the coast of Cornwall and Devon. Through an exploration of colour and mark making the work articulates the mood, atmosphere and energy of the subject matter and reflects on ever changing light created by the effects of the weather.
Sara works in oils, on a base of acrylic, building up layers of paint and creating different textures using a variety of tools to apply the paint. She explores and experiments with a limited palette creating a unique range of colours for her work.
'The process of painting is a journey of investigation, learning and surprise.'
