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".
