Abstract Artist. Biologist. Health Advocate. Spiritual Guru.
Sarah Phelps is someone who doesn’t shy away from challenges. She takes risks. Pushes herself outside of her comfort zone. Excels at everything she puts her energy into. She is a subtle mix of creativity and nature. Strength and courage. Talent and determination. All of these attributes come through in her art.
From a very early age, Sarah has been a gifted artist. Her drawings, paintings and scratch boards always stood out among her peers. With a previous career in wildlife biology, a passion for health and fitness and a zest for travel, she is someone that takes her life experiences and channels them into her art to create beautiful abstract paintings with depth and soul.
Sarah’s paintings come in various sizes and formats, primarily acrylic and mixed media on wood panel and canvas. Her two techniques, colour blending, and colour dragging create interesting textures and her bold colour palettes create unique and striking pieces. Sarah’s paintings exhibit flow, movement, ambiance, and energy.
Some of Sarah’s pieces are painted on raw and reclaimed wood from her grandfather’s workshop. Painting on hundred-year- old reclaimed wood adds a unique twist to her art with the pairing of old and new. Wisdom and edge. Her pieces carry both an intelligence and a freshness.
Sarah is someone who always says yes to life and in return, she has had some amazing opportunities to showcase her art. She exhibited her paintings at the Carrousel du Louvre in Paris France, and two art shows in Italy. In addition to many solo and group shows, Sarah’s pieces have also been featured in the Globe & Mail, a New York art competition, Toronto’s CityLine morning show, Houzz, and numerous publications. Among Sarah’s many collectors, a few are celebrities.
