''This collograph print is a development from an intense day of sketching at Dunbar harbour. I worked there on the day before the referendum and the light and atmosphere was strange. People reflected by walking on the beach or gazing out from the harbour wall''.

Sarah creates resonant landscape paintings and prints of shorelines from the Firth of Forth to the isle of Iona. She also presents lyrical botanical images inspired by Duddingston Fields in Edinburgh. Her work has a distinctive palette and combines mixed media techniques including unique collograph prints, screen-prints, and paintings. Sarah’s roots are in North Norfolk but since moving to Scotland in 1986 her artwork has been inspired by the layers of history in the Scottish landscape.
