Sharpe, Sarah


Sarah is a painter and print maker specialising in lithography. She is interested in the experiences of women, in particular being a mother, and the mother/daughter relationship. Her work is influenced by archetypal material, and images and feelings within my internal landscape. 

Sarah has exhibited in London at the Bankside Gallery and in the Royal Society Summer exhibition as well as throughout the North-West. Her solo exhibitions include Unconditional Love at Circle Gallery, Sheffield.


‘I am a little bit obsessed with the Mother and Child Archetypes. I think this partly stems from personal experience of being a mother, in particular, a mother of a disabled child. Without doubt, the main reason I paint, is to make some sort of sense of deeply felt emotions. Stories of mothers, both present day and past, real and imagined constantly inspires me.’

‘I work intuitively, often from small sketches, at other times I paint spontaneously.’
