Sara Hill

It comes from Brighton artist Sara Hill.

Sara said: “My work is a mix of seascapes and detailed depictions of nature on land, colorful, energetic and thought provoking.

“These works in oil, pencil and charcoal were created over the past two years.

“I have always immersed myself in nature. It is a constant inspiration. I am daily at sea and regularly in the woods and countryside, always absorbing the ever-changing moods and transforming images that are reflected in my paintings.

“More than ever, it is time to appreciate the natural world around us. I hope that visitors to my exhibition will feel the same and can immerse themselves in these spaces of contemplation.

“Born in Brighton, I attended Eastbourne Art College when I was 16.

“Out of college I continued to paint, alongside some time as a photographer and band promoter, designing their logos, posters and record covers. I have exhibited in over 100 exhibitions , many of them solo, across the UK and in Berlin.

“My work has also been featured on television. Pastels have been commissioned by BBC1 for Randall and Hopkirk’s remake Deceased, summaries for ITV’s Shell Seekers with Vanessa Redgrave, oil paintings in BBC2’s BAFTA-winning That Mitchell and Webb Look and Disney Channel commissioned paintings for his children’s channel.

“My paintings come from the heart.

“To quote Edward Hopper ‘If you could put it in words, there would be no reason to paint.’

“Influences include Munch and Van Gogh, true artists at heart and soul.”
