Sarah Bond is a classically trained landscape artist working mainly in oils, from her studio in Cumnor Village near Oxford.
Walking inspires her art, whether it is across the local countryside, along coastal paths, or high in the mountains. Her work aims to evoke a feeling and capture a sense of place rather than reproduce a direct likeness. She aims to reveal the interplay of light, time and season on both rural and urban landscapes. She works mainly in oils, but also in watercolour, acrylic and pastel, using a bold palette and layer upon layer of rich textures. She loves painting the sea and is particularly inspired by the West Cornish coast and the Solent, which is where she grew up.
Recently her work has explored the effect of Climate Change on the natural environment and the positive aspects of renewable energy, especially wind turbines. She is fascinated by these gentle giants both on land and sea. Her aim is to capture their movement and grace while exploring how this new technology relates to the landscape.
In her seascapes and paintings of mountains she explores the phenomenon of extreme weather including wild, stormy seas and melting glaciers.
