This auction is raising proceeds for The Hepatitis C Trust
Sarah grew up in Yorkshire, close to the city of Leeds and the Yorkshire Dales. Since graduating from Wimbledon School of Art, London, Sarah has maintained a professional practice, occupying various studios across London, and now settled in Space Studios, Peckham, London.
Following a successful exhibition at Falmouth Art Gallery in Cornwall, curated by Cath Wallace, Sarah's work has been shown and sold through Quantum Contemporary Art, London at art fairs around the world.
For many years Sarah has immersed herself in the painting of pears and continues to develop her skills and contemporary style, whilst also applying the same concentration to a series of small flower paintings.
The genre of still life painting and particularly painting pears, has dominated Sarah’s practice for some time. Looking at the paintings of Cezanne and Morandi, or the more elaborate Dutch still life painters, she has become fascinated by how the depiction of simple everyday objects can convey something more than the things seen.

Statement about AOAP Submitted Artwork
Painting on such a small scale, on paper, was a challenge, but I followed the same principles as I do for my larger paintings on linen.
You must not reproduce, duplicate, copy, sell, resell or exploit any works. In doing so, you endanger our relationships with artists, and directly jeopardise the charitable work we do.
PLEASE DO NOT BID ON ARTWORK IN OUR ART ON A POSTCARD AUCTIONS IF YOU INTEND ON SELLING THE ARTWORK AFTER YOU HAVE PURCHASED IT. THIS AUCTION HAS BEEN ORGANISED FOR CHARITY AND ALL ARTWORKS HAVE BEEN GENEROUSLY DONATED BY THE ARTISTS TO RAISE MONEY FOR THE HEPATITIS C TRUST. WHEN THE WORK PRODUCED FOR THE CHARITY IS SOLD ON THE SECONDARY MARKET IT DAMAGES OUR RELATIONSHIP WITH THE ARTIST AND PREVENTS US FROM FUNDRAISING.
