The Dartmoor Artist – Sarah Smith

Thank you for visiting. I’m mostly made up of Yorkshire tea, Ferrero Roche, big hair, even bigger earrings, a love of shoes and an even bigger love of wine. I live on beautiful Dartmoor with things you’re warned not to mix….children and animals…

…unfortunately the straw that broke the camel’s back (quite literally) was in 2017, when I injured my back. A culmination of years of dance and a badly timed sneeze led to spinal surgery in late December 2017. During my recovery, I had to do something. I had to create. I had to make. So I began to sketch.  Working in acrylic meant instant colour came into my world – which was pretty black and white at that point…and BOOM….I found my inspiration. COLOUR…..and before I knew it, the work just came. So here I am today….making and creating and producing art.

Thank you so much for visiting, Sarah x
