Sarah Wimperis was born into a family with artistic roots that began on The Lizard, Cornwall in 1650. Sarah studied Fine Art at Falmouth School of Art. Subsequently she exhibited with several galleries including the Portal Gallery in London and illustrated for the BBC and National Trust. After travelling the world, painting all the way to China, Russia, Israel and Norway she returned to Cornwall and set up a mural company as well as working as an illustrator whilst bringing up a young family. Since 2008, Sarah has been exhibiting with Beside The Wave gallery in Falmouth and London.

'I am a traditional figurative artist. I paint plein air in oils or watercolour. Larger studio paintings are completed using plein air reference either at home in my Cornish studio or on my travels in my lovely mobile studio. I gather painting inspiration through travel and visiting new places. I find myself drawn to domestic subject matter; complex interiors, markets, gardens. I am a compulsive sketchbook keeper.

I am the only English oil painter artist/animator who worked on the film "Loving Vincent", an animated feature film about the life of Vincent Van Gogh due for release in Autumn 2017.  I also work for Artlook Software as Client Support and Artist Ambassador.'

Sarah will be holding a one-off Urban Landscape workshop at Bath Artists' Studios on 27th June.
