Sara Chandler — Painter

I was a brought up “out on the Salisbury Plain” in Wiltshire and have lived in or near the Cotswolds all my working life after studying in Bath. I have never taken for granted the beauty of my environment. Three years ago, after 40 years in education, I left the classroom for a quieter journey to rediscover my creativity. It’s taking a while!
I began by going back to basics; life drawing was, and still is, fundamental to my drawing pracice. Line and structure have always interested me but colour is taking on a more important role in my painting now. Landscapes, florals that aren’t too “girly” and my garden are my current preoccupations. My website shows the current outcomes of my journey.
