Sarah Jane Brown lives in the heart of the spectacular Pembrokeshire Coast National Park in West Wales. Born in 1970, she had been painting for more than 20 years before studying as a mature student. She specialised in Fine Art Painting at the West Wales School of the Arts, where she was awarded a First Class Honours Degree and named student of the year. Since graduating Sarah Jane Brown’s career as a full time professional artist continues to gain momentum and recognition, she has exhibited widely (See EXHIBITIONS) and her work is now attracting collectors throughout the UK and overseas.

Her expressive style combines a variety of techniques; staining and glazing in thin layers, building up to often very thick and textured impasto. Conceptually her paintings are an outpouring of personal feeling rather than representations of actual ‘views’. Most of the works remain recognisable as landscapes, but are open to interpretation. Many offer a duality, using the landscape metaphorically to describe thoughts and emotions.

“The familiar coastal landscape near my home in Pembrokeshire is source material for my painting. I walk, photograph, sketch and make painted studies. From these I continue my practise in the studio; early representational work often becoming Sarah Jane Brown out on the Pembrokeshire Coastmore abstract as I engage with the physicality of painting. I use colour and gesture to convey the sensations of light and space, the elemental forces of nature, and the emotions that are unleashed by the experience.”
