“My paintings try and tell the story of feminine vulnerability,tenderness and fragility.The style is paradoxically chaotic; the brazen and aggressive brush strokes use colours that bear no similarity to my skin; the shameless scale invades my space. The translucency and reflection of skin, furrowed lips, curving necks, sweeping hair, soulful eyes; they are a visual body language narrating the story that I can’t vocalize.”Says Sarah
The shameless scale breaks my intimacy barriers.The translucency & reflection of skin, furrowed lips, curving necks,sweeping hair and soulful eyes narrate a story I can’t vocalize.”
“Extend yourself, because the more life experience you have the more depth your work will have.”
“My art is closer to home, simpler,
humbler I watch people, how they interact, I love subtle body language. Inspiration I get from you,
the person standing next to you, my memories, all other artists
good and bad, my kids, friends who have strange dreams…..”
