The Tettenhall based artist specialises in painting wonderful watercolours of animals including Highland cattle, birds, foxes and pheasants and currently has some of her work on show in the Wolverhampton Society of Artists' exhibition at the Lichfield Street gallery.

Sarah, who recently secured a contract with a major giftware distributor which will see her work printed on a range of items from mugs to cushions, will be at the gallery on Saturday (20 February) from 10am to 2pm encouraging other artists to pick up a brush and get painting.

Councillor John Reynolds, the City of Wolverhampton Council's Cabinet Member for Economy, said: "The Wolverhampton Society of Artists show has been a wonderful opportunity to showcase our home grown talent.

"Many of the members have held workshops in the gallery to promote their work and Sarah's will be the final one before the exhibition ends on Saturday 27 February.

"We are always pleased to host the exhibition because it is such a great showcase of all the artistic talent we have in the city."
