Characterized by bold strokes and vibrant colours, Sara’s work strives to reinterpret classic Canadian landscapes in a contemporary fashion. With intuition guiding her colour choices and composition, Sara paints loosely from photographs and impressions from her travels across Canada.

“Once I started landscape painting, I started to experience my environment differently. Snow, pavement, and tress were no longer white or grey, but different hues of blues, purple, and pink. I started to notice the subtleties in colour variation and the unique colours that shadows display.”

Sara lives and works in Ottawa, Canada.
