The Arty Card Company is an Isle of Wight based business that commissions and produces greetings cards for local artists. All ranges are linked to the Island; some by birth, some by scene and others by a deeper sense of belonging to a unique community of people.
Born and educated in Suffolk, Sarah studied at the Ipswich School of Art, and then completed a three-year painting degree at the Kingston School of Art. She completed a postgraduate certificate in education and still teaches part time. Sarah has lived on the Isle of Wight with her husband since 1981 and has 3 grown up sons, and various animals.
Whether it is portraits, animals or landscapes, Sarah prefers to work from life - contact with the subject is very important to her.
A versatile painter, she gets her inspiration from the world around her, and inevitably from the passions and pursuits she shares with her family. Sarah has enjoyed painting the lush landscapes of Suffolk, the seascapes, flora and fauna of the Isle of Wight and the wildernesses of Australia.
In 2004 she had a portrait accepted for the Royal Academy of Arts Summer Exhibition. Sarah enjoys working with live subjects most of all, and has a fascination for capturing the essence of the subject.
Whilst she loves the outdoors and the ever changing natural world, she will always come back to the close observation of character. She has now painted many of the Island’s residents, and will happily consider commissions.
