Sarah Arsenault is a British-Canadian artist based in London. She is a semi-abstract painter who explores human ecology. Her engagements within the environments that she experiences and the interconnectivity that exists among all things, are the prominent themes she explores. Working largely with Eco acrylic, ink and mediums Sarah depicts how she views the world. Her paintings and collages often explore the environmental crisis through a subtle lens.

Statement about AOAP Submitted Artwork
The health of our natural ecosystems depends on pollinators, which include bees, butterflies and other small creatures. They are largely taken for granted, yet so important to our species well being. These paintings highlight the vital act of pollination, the beauty of the pollinators and through a subtle lens, the trouble they are in.
