Sarah Waghorn

Sarah Waghorn is both a traditional en plein air painter and studio artist. A lover of Australian flora.

She originates from the UK and studied a Bachelor of Arts in Graphic Design at Bristol Polytechnic. For almost ten years prior to moving away from the UK she spent her time working in London on magazines as an Art Director. Titles included House & Garden, Brides & Setting up Home, Tatler and ELLE.
After making her way to Australia in 1999 Sarah completed a Diploma in Photography at KVB in North Sydney and took up a career in photography. This was cut short by the combination of the arrival of children and some overseas postings with her husband. Finally, Sarah settled in Sydney with her family in 2010, and decided to start painting in 2015, something she hadn’t done for years.

Sarah had a painting shortlisted in the Warringah Art Prize in 2016 which was a turning point – she hasn’t looked back since.

…”Coming to Australia has made me think about and observe the light. The strong sunlight and increased density of colour produced by this pure light has been both fascinating and inspiring. I am forever enchanted by how light falls across plants, flowers, leaves, water and landscape and having grown up in a far softer (Northern Hemisphere) light I notice the Australian colour temperature all the time and am eager to capture this in my paint palette.”

Recent FINALIST in the Lethbridge Prize(2017, 2018 & 2019), The Hawkesbury Art Prize (2019), The Little Things Art Prize (2019),

Waverley Art Prize (2020), Calleen Art Award (2020), Muswellbrook Art Award (2021)
