Artist Statement

Sarah is a Marine Biologist turned artist, born and returned to Grey Bruce with her studio now in Owen Sound, Ontario. She is a signature member of Artists for Conservation with a united vision to preserve and sustain our natural heritage. In her work, Sarah captures the unique behaviours of animals and gives us a window into the sentimental moments in their lives. She has supported conservation with every animal painting created since transitioning to painting full-time in 2020.

Sarah’s love for nature and the ocean began early. Growing up and always dreaming about the sea, she moved to Halifax in 2013 to study Marine Biology at Dalhousie University and make her dream of studying ocean animals a reality. While in Halifax, Sarah researched long-finned pilot whales and cultivated her skills as a wildlife photographer out on the ocean. She graduated with a degree in marine biology and a certificate in animal behaviour in 2017. Sarah then moved to Vancouver, Canada, and began researching gentoo penguins at the University of British Columbia. She graduated with her Master of Science in Zoology in 2020.

Sarah has been an avid painter since she was young. After discovering Artists for Conservation in 2018, she was accepted as an associate member in 2019. Sarah has achieved standing in the top 200 artworks featured in their annual juried exhibit the past three years, and her painting “First Breath” depicting mother and calf Humpback whales was chosen for the cover of the organization’s 2023 calendar.
