Sarah Warren is a London based artist.
Nature, dreams and the subconscious have inspired me to bring that essence into my art. It is a sense of the unknowable that I have tried to capture, something mysterious and elusive. It seems that this is a never ending source to draw upon.
If I were to describe my painting style I hope it would be some kind of visual poetry.
I experiment with textures and colour and working with all sorts of media. At the moment I have discovered dyed silver leaf and the colours produced from mica which can be iridescent. I find them a wonderful source to paint with, although I use acrylics as the base of all my paintings.
I have a previous career as a Jewellery Designer and silversmith. I have had many exhibitions and my work is in the Private Collection of Goldsmiths Hall. I had more opportunity to focus on my paintings and I was introduced to a gallery that sold my work into the Palaces of the Middle East. With my current collection of paintings it is possible to see the jewellery influences behind some of the paintings.
