Sarah Bishop, Australian artist

About Sarah

Sarah - Saddle Up SeriesSarah Bishop's work is a blend of rich colours, bold textures and sensual subjects, served up in
generous portions and infused with her warmth.

She was raised in the Hunter Valley, NSW on a rural property which provided the foundation for her artistry,
her fascination with nature, colour, texture and form and all that surrounds her.

Her love of travel and adventure has hugely influenced her work which is inviting and vivid with a style and
sensitivity that envelops the canvas.

Her work has been well received in Australia and internationally with four sell-out solo exhibitions in
Hong Kong.

In addition to her exhibitions, Sarah is regularly commissioned to carry out private and corporate work.
She has also conducted art workshops for adult students.
