Ramsgill

About

Sarah works from her Ramsgill Studio in rural Upper Nidderdale. She trained in graphic design at the University of Northumbria in the 1990’s and in her early career established herself as a painter. All her work has a common route in development, collecting sketches and photographs on long walks through the Yorkshire Dales and coast. Her paintings reflect her passion for the landscape and nature. Stylistically her work is representational with a little nod to impressionism and show her love of colour and mark making. Most recently she has introduced cold wax medium into her paint, allowing her to work in layers, applying the paint thickly and drawing back into it.

In 2017 a grant funded project through Nidderdale Visual Arts gave her the opportunity to develop an aspect of her professional practice and saw Sarah’s work develop in various areas of print including screen print, drypoint and solar plate print.

Her work is continuously changing and developing but always with an emphasis on drawing. Her sketchbooks and journals are an integral part of her work and becoming increasingly so.
