Ladies that Lunch
In life, we are lucky if we find our true calling. Sarah-Jane discovered hers in hospital aged four. With one eye bandaged following surgery, there was a crayon in her hand and despite the obvious handicap she was drawing pictures.
Encouraged by her English mother and Hungarian father, Sarah-Jane completed a foundation at Harrogate Art College and specialised in illustration at The Northern School of art. Sarah-Jane has worked as a freelance fine artist since 1991.
At first glance, Sarah-Jane’s art can appear care-free but scratch the veneer and you soon discover that her work offers a thoughtfulness that first appearances betray. Using a variety of actors ranging from mammals to biscuits, there is a determination to explore the human condition and the absurdity of life.
“My objective is to find the common thread that connects us and I hope that empathy is at the heart of my work”
Since the early 1990’s her work has been reproduced as limited edition prints, sculpture, Royal Worcester ceramics and more. Sarah-Jane now represents herself; living and working in the North East of England, she focusses on painting and occasionally publishes fine art prints.
