Sarah Ollerenshaw is an artist with a background in fine art restoration. After studying Spanish and History of Art at Birmingham University she took a postgraduate diploma at Christie's which led on to an apprenticeship in restoration and conservation. Throughout her studies she has always painted.
Sarah's landscapes and seascapes are drawn from her experiences whilst out walking. Working loosely from photographs her paintings are executed with an intensity and vigour with painterly bold marks, scratches and washes. They are simple yet dramatic and have a poetic quality; a balanced rhythm of colour and form triggering the memory to recall and revisit places of beauty.
