Sarah has always enjoyed the creative arts but it was not until lockdown, and a joint project with her teenage son, that she found a passion for fluid acrylics.
Using a variety of paint pouring techniques, including tilts and swipes, she creates her Multiflorous fantasy gardens.
These whimsical scenes are full of colourful floral spires and grasses which flow organically across the canvas. Iridescent and pearlescent paints are used to produce bold shimmering flower stems and moody skies.
Sarah’s work is inspired by Kaffe Fassett’s bold vibrant tapestry and knitting designs, Priscilla Batzell a prolific expressionist acrylic flow artist, and Sarah’s own love of gardening - including the marquee at the Chelsea Flower Show which houses wonderful banks of lupin and foxgloves.
This is Sarah’s first solo exhibition and she is delighted to be able to present her work here at the Willesden Gallery in her home borough of Brent where she has lived for most of her life.
In memory of Sarah’s father, a percentage of the proceeds from this show will go towards the Alzheimer’s Society which supports research projects and families of those suffering with dementia.
