Sarah Watson explores the beauty and dynamism of the natural landscape, travelling to the most stunning and diverse areas of the UK to paint. She is particularly in thrall to the constantly changing colours and patterns in the crop fields and the endlessly changing drama in the clouds of her home county Lincolnshire’s enormous skies. She works almost exclusively en plein air, channelling her immediate emotional response to the surrounding English countryside into expressive marks and colour. The landscape itself is sometimes almost completely abstracted but the form is still held.
She has exhibited in four one woman shows across the UK, and is represented by Gallery6 in Newark. She featured on the Sky Arts television show Landscape Artist Of The Year in 2016, and was accepted for membership of the exclusive Lincolnshire Artists’ Society in 2019.
Born in Oakham, Rutland, in 1972, Sarah graduated from De Montfort University with a First Class degree in Combined Arts in 1994, specializing in Abstract Painting. After 15 years working in the music industry, she settled in Lincolnshire to devote her time entirely to painting.
