Biography

North London born and raised artist, Sarah Adams, uses a limited colour palette of acrylics anchored with white, painting onto paper in thick, buttery brush marks. Her art practice is inspired by her home city of London, and her works take in well known, recognisable views, painted to create a calming, peaceful feel of what are otherwise, crowded and bustling settings.

The ever-changing, diverse and beautiful London skyline resonates with Sarah and she enjoys recording a moment in time, and has captured many of the city’s landmarks and views in her paintings.

Sarah depicts gentle views of London in her distinctive style, which allows the viewer to see London in a new light, using few brush marks to create the landscape that from afar looks really detailed.

Since training at Insight School of Art in North London, she has emerged onto the London art scene, and has sold many paintings through group and solo exhibitions, and through Wychwood Art, her representative online agent with a gallery in Oxfordshire. Her work has been seen at the Battersea Affordable Art Fair, The Strand Gallery, Espacio Gallery, and Camden Image Gallery.

Her work has been accepted for many open exhibitions, including most recently the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition, and the ING Discerning Eye, Mall Galleries, 2016. She has recently completed a commission for the Battersea Power Station development, and her work has been reproduced on a large scale, for the hoardings of the new buildings. She is also the resident artist at The Shard gift boutique.

Three of Sarah’s latest works will be part of the 2018 ING Discerning Eye exhibition, Mall Galleries.
