Paintings inspired by the Scottish landscape and a feeling for the spirit of a place, exploring the poetry of dissolving form, atmosphere, light and distance. Simple compositions of colour and light suggest something beyond the horizon.
Sarah Knox is an established painter and printmaker at Beaverhall Studios. Since graduating Sarah has continued painting, printing and artist book-making. She is an artist and art teacher based in Edinburgh.
