Born in Dublin in 1980, Sarah is a self-taught artist whose life-long passion for horses is reflected in her art. From riding ponies as a child to competing and training in Europe and the United States as a young woman, from studying Animal Science in University College Dublin to breeding show jumping horses on the family run stud farm in Co. Kildare, horses have always held a special place in her heart.
Sarah had always been interested in art, but it was not until she moved to Co. Down that this interest matured, and she began to create seriously. With her painting, Sarah had found an even more profound way of connecting with her beloved horses, by capturing the spirit and majestic power of the animals on canvas. Now, her love of horses is equalled only by her love of painting.
As an artist, Sarah tends to rely on instinctual and emotional application of colour, attempting to capture vibrant, fleeting moments of spirit, creating a sense that the animal is alive on the canvas. Her creativity combines tension and passion, her style is uninhibited and wakeful, full of energy and vibrant colour.
Through the reaction to her work Sarah has discovered that when you can stop for a moment in your time that what can be revealed will not only surprise but will make you smile! Sarah has been well received both at home and abroad, and her paintings have found homes across Ireland, in Europe, America, Australia and Dubai.
