Born and raised in Belfast, Sarah studied Drawing & Painting at Edinburgh College of Art where she lived and worked for many years before moving to the West Highlands. She has exhibited in the R.S.A, the R.H.A and the R.U.A. and has recently been made an Associate member of the Royal Ulster Academy. Her work is in several public collections including the Arts Council of Northern Ireland. “My recent work has been inspired by my new surroundings and I've been particularly drawn to the salt-marsh close to our home and the mysterious hill behind (Angel Hill) which provides an excellent promontory for sketching. The plein air studies are developed in the studio into oil paintings or very large charcoal drawings, where memory and emotion start to take over.” Sarah runs a popular life-drawing group near her home in Kirkton.
