Sarah L Goy
I'm a UK based artist, living on the South Coast of England. I originally Studied at Reigate Art School doing Fine Art and once qualified I then went to Bournemouth and Poole Art College to focus on Natural History Illustration.
With a passion for travel I've been fortunate to see some amazing countries and meet incredible people - all of which is captured in my sketchbooks.
I'm inspired by colour, travel, people and nature and I sketch absolutely everything, my sketches are the foundation for all other work I do. I have a very diverse range of styles and use many mediums to bring alive the experiences recorded in my Sketchbooks.
My work ranges from pure illustration, pencil, ink and water colour, large scale semi abstract Ink pieces and oils. I love to experiment and when people come to my exhibitions I want them to be unsure as to what to expect but feel relaxed and enjoy the experience.
I believe art should be accessible to all and wish to break down certain barriers.
