Sarah Gillespie lives in Devon, England and works full-time as a painter, typically making tiny oil sketches outside in the summer months, and then very large studio canvases and charcoals in the winter. As a student, she studied 16th and 17th century techniques at the Atelier Neo-Medici in Paris. Today, Gillespie adheres to the simple truths that make landscape a perennially significant art form: above all, attentiveness to the nature of the world we live in and the place it will always occupy in the poetic imagination.
