Currently living and working in Edinburgh as an artist. Graduating in 1999 from Edinburgh University with a sell-out degree show, Sarah began her career as a self-employed artist based in Edinburgh. Her work focuses on the Scottish coastline, a passion she has had since childhood holidays on the west coast and sailing excursions around the Hebrides.

Her paintings are often large in scale (up to 12 x 6 feet), colourful yet at the same time subtle. Her understanding of the nature of the sea is evident in her work. The viewer is enveloped by the vastness of the sea and sky. The depth and distance of the sea and sky are constant features in her work. Most of the paintings are created in the studio from photographs and sketches executed on-the-spot, at the beach.

She travels regularly to the west coast and islands for inspiration. She uses household emulsion, oil, sand and varnish to create a variety of surfaces to describe the different textures found at the sea-shore and the mood and weather of the place. For Sarah, the sea remains a constant inspiration for her work.
