Sarah Sheehan



ARTIST STATEMENT

Art runs in my blood, inspired at a very young age from my father, who is an amazing Artist and inspiring person to me constantly.

I dabbled in and out of Art throughout my life but only recently (as of last year, 2012) have dedicated full time to becoming an Artist.

Eagerly wanting to paint straight away, I decided to start with drawing using pencils, inks, pastels and watercolours, as I knew this skill would help my process of painting. I’ve only picked up the brushes and mixing oil paints this year (2013).

I’m inspired daily by so many things, not just things like nature but sometimes the tiny patterns you wouldn’t normally see…. Also emotions / feelings can be another contributing inspiration.

Portrait Painting is what I’m currently enjoying, I just love eyes and the way you can read them in so many different ways, sometimes that’s where the whole story is.

I’m still exploring all sorts of techniques in use of oil paints and loving the experimenting part as much as the pre-planning/sketching part of the painting.

Just this year my fiancé and I have completed renovating an Art Studio place at home to inspire me daily in my own space of creation.

Also I’m very excited to be chosen to showcase amongst other Artists in the – South West Survey Exhibition, commencing 15th March 2014 at the Bunbury Regional Art Gallery.
