Sarah Warnes
Blue II  

Sarah Warnes studied Fine Art and Illustration, and gained B.A.(Hons) Degree in Illustration at Anglia Ruskin University in 2003. She has exhibited in and around Cambridge, and is a regular gallery artist at the Porthminster Gallery in St. Ives Cornwall.

She teaches watercolour painting and drawing in Cambridgeshire and London, directs art education projects and has illustrated several published books and on-line courses. Sarah also trained at the Royal Academy of Music studying singing and harp, and music continues to directly influence and inform her work.

I live in a small South Cambridgeshire village, surrounded by fields, a nature reserve and bordered by the hills of Essex and Hertfordshire and use the landscape as my point of inspiration. I regularly walk the village ‘boundary’, and record variations in the seasonal colours, effects of light, and the historical patterns and lines, - which I use in my work to create
a “sense of place

Sarah's work is water-based, sometimes purely watercolour, but at other times she uses gouache, graphite, ink and gold leaf metal – whatever she needs to express, whatever she is saying about the piece in progress.
