Sara Habgood

"I enjoy variety and experimentation in my painting – from the medium I’m working with, to the subject matter I’m involved in. This keeps my painting practice alive and interesting for me. My aim is for the joy and satisfaction I get from my work to be translated to the viewer." Sara Habgood

After a foundation at the Banbury School of Art, Sara Habgood went on to Goldsmiths’ College, University of London, for her degree in Fine Art and History of Art.

 

Sara's first solo exhibition was at the Chelsea Gallery and resulted in a feature in the Guardian newspaper. Following this early success, her work has been shown in many solo and group exhibitions throughout the UK including shows such as AAF and 20/21 International Art Fair at the Royal College. Her work is held in many private collections in the UK and overseas (Canada, Italy, South Africa, Spain and the USA) and Sara has exhibited with Carina Haslam Art for three years in London, Buckinghamshire and at art fairs around the UK.

Sara's recent painting marks a departure from previously more figurative work. This new body of work reflects a love of bold, positive, exuberant and decorative images. The pieces are strong and graphic and use different techniques and textures to explore the process of representation. They aim to elicit a positive sensory interaction with the viewer.
