About Sarah Watson BA (Hons)
Sarah Watson graduated from De Montfort University in 1994 with a First Class Degree in Combined Arts & Humanities, studying Fine Art, History of Art and Media Studies. She continued to paint large scale commissioned abstract paintings and portraits, during a 15 year career in the music industry. In 2009 she returned to her Rutland and Lincolnshire roots to concentrate on her painting which focuses mostly on semi-abstract landscapes in pastels, oils and acrylics, drawing inspiration from the glorious countryside around her. A more commercial leg to her artistic portfolio is Wonky Dogs, her ‘expressive animal portraits for the stylish animal lover.’ Sarah has exhibited her work widely, with solo shows in the Lake District and at the Guildhall Arts Centre in Grantham in 2015.
To ensure the quality of your personal experience, group size will be limited to 8.
