Biography of sarah spence

 Sarah lives and works in France and her work has recently been accepted by the Royal Institute of Painters in Oil (ROI)

"I was born in Brighton, coming from a family who seemed to be either medical or artists. My great grandfather, Ernest Spence was a landscape and portrait painter.

Although I had been accepted into several art schools when younger my life took a different turn and I ended up working in the health sector. I have lived in Europe , Asia and the Middle East and have always continued to paint and spend a lot of time with artists, painting and learning from them.

I now live in the South of France where I have taken part in several mixed artists exhibitions. Self- taught but with help from a successful and accomplished artist I now work in oils, concentrating on still life painting.

I love colour and pattern and my present work is a selection of seafood still lifes which, for me encompass both of these passions perfectly".
