We have decided to offer a deicated gallery to local artists who share an enthusiasm for our beloved South Downs.
If you have walked the South Downs Way on one of our holidays or if you have enjoyed our one of our weekend walks through the bluebells or fields of poppy’s you may want to enhance your memories of your trip with one of the prints below (please contact us directly for prices and delivery options).
Sarah is based in our hometown of Steyning. She mainly uses oils for her works and is inspied by shapes and colours within nature.
"I paint the simple, beautiful things that I see all around me. I look for beauty in all things even when they can be quite harsh in reality. Sometimes landscapes or skies take me by surprise and I have to try and get a quick photo or do a fast sketch before the light changes and they disappear. I often sketch from memory using photos as aids, I try to capture the emotion of a place rather than reproduce photographic representations."
All of the prints below are available in either A2 or A3. They are unframed and unmounted to ease postage and delivery. The prints can be both mounted and framed, however this will increase postage costs. The prints below are typically priced at between £50 and £60 each plus P&P unmounted.
