Sarah Darby Painting oil on canvas, mainly still life, looking at traditional forms of composition with a fresh interpretation, my chief motivation is to get it like it really is; what captures me is honesty. I trained as a fine artist, and work as a book cover designer. I have exhibited in London, Oxford and the South East. I am inspired by remote, wild places and, later this year, will be creating a new body of work influenced by the atmosphere of Southern Patagonia and the Andes where I will be undertaking a solo three month drawing and cycling expedition from April.
