Born in Leicestershire in 1964, Sarah Carvell grew up in the Vale of Clwyd at Llannefydd and is a fluent Welsh speaker. She studied Art in Wrexham and at Loughborough College of Art, before returning to North Wales to teach Art & Design at secondary and further education levels.
Sarah works from her studio in north Wales, where the main focus of her work is oil painting, slightly abstracted in style, applied by palette knife in impasto swathes, working from sketches drawn on location in the Welsh landscape. She is inspired by Nicolas De Stael and David Bomberg, and Welsh artists Peter Prendergast and Sir Kyffin Williams.
Sarah has enjoyed a string of very successful solo exhibitions in both North and South Wales.
