Sarah Garforth 4


Sarah is a landscape oil painter and printmaker taking her influence from the rivers, reservoirs and landscape in Nidderdale. She works in a traditional way collecting reference in sketchbooks which are integral to her work. She is fascinated with mark making, colour and light working in an impasto and sgraffito manner. Her printmaking is predominantly screenprint from drawn artwork and solar plate print.

Studio experience

My space in a 16yr old working studio full of materials, printing press and numerous sketchbooks and working books. There will be work in various stages of development both oil and print... I'm happy to demonstrate elements of working practice and pass on knowledge on materials. I make sketchbooks for my own work... full ones will be on display and empty ones available to buy!
