        Sarah Porter
  

 

 




 









...nature has its own beauty which constantly changes and is hard to pin down, so I use my imagination to produce my own version...

Sarah Porter graduated in fine art from Sunderland College of Art and Goldsmiths College, London, before emigrating to Canada. There she worked as a graphic designer and illustrator before resuming her career in fine art during her last five years in North America.

She has travelled extensively on that continent and has spent a considerable amount of time in the south-west United States. The strong clear light, the colours of the desert and Native American art strongly influenced her work from the outset and are still the primary factors in her work today.

She returned to England in 1994 and has since had several exhibitions as well as having had her work sold to publishers and greeting card companies.

Symbolism, archetypal imagery and bright colours suffuse her work, with animals and mythical people being the prime subject matter.
