Sarah Elder

Gallery Room 4 – Over £500-£2000

Born in Cyprus and brought up in Fiji and then the English countryside Sarah has always drawn inspiration from the animals, landscapes, people and everyday life she has encountered, both in her extensive travels abroad and in the UK. Her career as a professional artist began in 1995 when she swapped the global stock markets of the City’s virtual world for the primitive heat and dust of Africa and Asia.  She has a remarkable talent for observation and a singular ability to render the colour, movement and atmosphere of the scene before her. Now firmly established as a very successful travel and wildlife artist with several awards to her name (including BBC Wildlife Artist of the Year). On winning the award the judges said “Sarah has cleverly captured the fluid movement of the cheetah in an organic and unique style. It sings Africa ”. Once again the eight pictures she entered the following two years for the award were all finalists (an artist can only win once though), which is testament to her achievement. Sarah’s work is held in many public and private collections throughout the world.  She has exhibited in solo and group exhibitions for over 30 years, has illustrated several books on Africa and her paintings have been featured on various television programmes.
