Artist - Sarah Anderson

Available in the Gallery

I grew up in Galloway (South-West Scotland) surrounded by peaceful woodland, rugged moorland and beautiful coastline. I graduated from Edinburgh University with an M.A.(Hons) in Fine Art in 1999. A very successful degree show inspired me to commit myself to painting. I primarily paint from a studio in my house.

My inspiration is derived from the magnificent Scottish landscape, particularly the west coast. The recurring themes in my work reflect the dramatic effects of weather on the mountains and shorelines, trees and of course my favourite place, Edinburgh.

The changing light and atmospheric effects have provided endless ideas and I seek to capture something of that. My palette is strongly coloured with a wide tonal range, principally in oils. The physical act of painting is important to me with paint surface a prominent element as I strive for simplicity of form and overall unity. The paintings I have recently completed attempt to envelop the viewer in the prevailing atmosphere.
