Semi - abstract expressive seascapes and coastal paintings in water soluble oils and mixed media. My paintings are inspired by the intensity of the coastline of Southwest Wight where I live.

Originals, limited edition prints and fine art cards.

I work from my garden studio near the downs in Brighstone, about a mile from the village. To find me head up and out of Brighstone either via North street then left into Upper Lane and right into Lynch lane or via Moortown Lane left into Lynch Lane. Keep going up!! After you pass the lane on the right to Coombe farm, we are 1 Rock Cottages on the left after Bon Sol.. Lynch Lane also starts at the crossroads in Calbourne with the Sun Inn opposite. Stay on the road through the woods and over the downs to the ‘Welcome to Brighstone’ sign, and I am the fourth cottage on the right. Parking is available in the layby opposite me and on the road.


After years of working in small detail with coloured pencils, I now enjoy painting freely and intuitively,  to express a sense of the places I love. The only problem is that I now have to store all the large canvases!

I grew up on the Island and left school to attend art college in Southampton, but somehow ended up with a career in biological sciences and pharmaceuticals  instead of the Arts! For many years I produced no art at all. But when I moved back to the West Wight with my young family I finally had the opportunity to return to it full time. We are so lucky to live in this area of outstanding natural beauty and I am constantly compelled to express it in different ways.

My island drawings website no longer exists as I am in the process of creating/redesigning a new one, but I do regularly post current works on my Facebook page - SarahStuartArtist, and also have art in my gallery page here on Isle of Wight Arts.
