Sarah Glover was born in Yorkshire where she developed a passion and talent for design and fine art from at a young age. Having spent a majority of her teen years in fine art and fashion college, she returned to her roots to establish a design business… where much of her hard work and tenacity has stemmed from.
Not only does Sarah feel that her years in art school were vital to her thinking and technique but the real grit and diversity of ‘doing life’ contributed to picking up the paintbrush again. 15 years ago, Sarah was inspired by local artist Peter Brook, who ‘magically summoned up my childhood surroundings – windswept moors and bleak architecture!’ she says. Not only did Sarah explore Northern Art, she showed her first local exhibition in 2014 which included oil paintings and portraits in this style. Blending surrealism exemplified her art to give it a real story element – which she looked to explore.
In 2016, she moved back into life drawing, concentrating on line and detail of the human form. Looking at how to distort this through expressionism or cubism. After her final selection for NOA 2016, Moving Art Award, Sarah felt the maturity of abstract art. ‘I was now fascinated with line and the vibrancy of colour’. After viewing the Hockney / Van Gogh exhibition, Amsterdam 2019, Sarah took her style to yet another level. As of late, Sarah has been working on contemporary themed acrylic paintings in a geometric abstract style. ‘I have affinity with this, it’s my calling’ she says.
Sarah’s work can be found in private collections in Manchester, London, Dublin and Madrid. 2022 – Sarah is building up a portfolio of paintings in her current style for gallery representation.
