At a young age Sarah's passion for traditional fine art was clearly evident. After completing a creative arts degree at Edith Cowan University in Perth, Sarah left her home town to pursue her desire to further hone her artistic skills.
Sarah spent 3 years studying the techniques and principles of classical realist fine art at the Florence Academy of Art in Italy. There she was immersed in a culture of passionate people where she could explore the many elements of realist fine art. Sarah studied drawing in pencil, charcoal and chalk, undertook anatomical sculpture, and completed her diploma having produced many fine oil paintings.
She graduated in 2013 and having moved back to Australia, now focuses on producing highly traditional, classical portraits in her Applecross studio. Sarah specialises not only in classical portraiture, but still life, landscape and figurative works, and is now taking private commissions.
