Sarah was born in North West London in 1973 and spent her early childhood in South Wales, near the Sea. She then returned to live in Middlesex, and has now settled in the St Albans area. During these early years, Sarah spent many hours with her Grandparents, her Grandfather a Photographer and allotment keeper and her Grandmother a seamstress. These influences fired Sarah’s imagination from an early age.
Soon after returning from University, she was offered her first solo Exhibition by Watford Area Arts Forum at the nationally known Palace Theatre. It was around this time, she met her partner, Wildlife Photographer Andy Sands. Many solo and joint Exhibitions followed. Her work has been sold at The Spring Fair, N.E.C, Birmingham, The Ideal Home Exhibition in London, The Antiques for Everyone Exhibition in Birmingham and more recently at Obsidian Art in Buckinhamshire and Art at 88 in Berkhamsted. Her work can be found in many private collections including The Weatherspoon Collection.
As a lover of nature and the environment, Sarah gathers her inspiration and ideas from many sources. Local walks, bike rides and short trips provide her with a constant source of reference and ideas. Since buying Chiswick Camera Centre in West London, with her partner in 2005, Sarah has gained a much deeper understanding of Photography. This allowed her to experiment freely with elements such as texture, colour and composition. She received her CPAGB in 2010 and joined the Judges circuit.
In 2012, Sarah was blessed with a baby girl. With time at a premium, looking after a business and a family, Sarah has returned to her passion for Painting.
