'My paintings are my emotional response to the natural world, charged with the energy of the brush strokes. They are a record of the total sensory experience within the elemental forces of nature.'


‘I tend to paint in places I know well in order to revisit the familiar and so that I can capture my ever-changing experience of light, land and sea. I seek to convey a sense of freedom and immediacy.’

–Sarah Ruthven
