Statement:  Sarah Bishop's work is a blend of rich colors, bold textures and sensual subjects, served up in generous portions and infused with her warmth.
She was raised in the Hunter Valley, NSW on a rural property which provided the foundation for her artistry, her fascination with nature, color, texture and form and all that surrounds her.
Her love of travel and adventure has hugely influenced her work which is inviting and vivid with a style and sensitivity that envelops the canvas.
Her work has been well received in Australia and internationally with three sell-out solo exhibitions in Hong Kong in the last four years.
In addition to her exhibitions, Sarah is regularly commissioned to carry out private and corporate work. She has also conducted art workshops for adult students.
