Summer Exhibition – Sarah Booth

Sarah graduated from West Surrey College of art and design in 1990 with a BA hons in fine art painting. She has spent time travelling and working as a teacher, artist in residence in schools in west London, as well as having a family and painting and exhibiting.

In 1996 she spent some time at the Cypriot Art college in Pafos, under the expert tutelage of Stass Paraskos, he was impressed by a bold use of colour and a quirky quality! It was here that Sarah started painting pomegranates that still feature in her work today.

Sarah’s work has been described as Gypsy folk, with a pinch of kitsch. The main themes at the moment are flowers, birds, pomegranates and insects.

‘I paint both from life and memory and my images unexpectedly continue over the sides of the canvases and can be enjoyed from multiple viewpoints. I use mixed media including canvas patches, gold leaf and may print on the sides of the canvases.’

Since 2008 Sarah has regularly exhibited at the New Ashgate Gallery Surrey, she has also exhibited at the Landmark Art fair in Teddington Lock, Artshed and Letchworth Art centre and more recently the Tudor Gallery Sawbridgeworth. She is currently doing an MA in art therapy at the University of Hertfordshire and is excited to be exhibiting at the i2Art Gallery in Saffron Walden

Sarah lives in Hertfordshire and works from her garden studio
