She tends to paint the ‘less seen’ views of local places around Matlock & Wirksworth.
Looking at the way the built, man-made environment with it’s the geometric shapes and structural lines, sits within the undulating, organic landscape.
She keeps the sense of place, sometimes being more descriptive, yet responds in an expressive, informal manner.
She has formed a strong bond with the area; its soft rolling hills, dramatic cliff faces, surprise town vistas, tree-lined hills and parks. She prefers to work outdoors to get a feel of the view; the atmosphere & rhythm when immersed in it. Singular or groups of trees, often form an important part of the work such as the Oker tree or Peak Tor. Sarah has found resonance in the work of Paul Nash, Eric Ravillious, and David Hockney.
‘High Tor in Winter Light’ won Commended in Derbyshire Open Competition. Sarah is a winner (2014-2016) Matlock Bath ProLoco.
