Sarah Whitbread is a Melbourne based painter. She holds a Bachelor of Fine Art in painting and has been working as a professional artist for over twenty years.
Working from her studio in Highett, Sarah draws from a combination of memory and observation of the everyday. Through the fluid use of colour and line, a tapestry of luminosity evolves. A beautiful energy interweaves throughout the canvas defining pattern and shape with forms of nature.
Sarah shares her studio with husband and prominent Australian artist Graeme Altmann who together have entrenched themselves in developing an independent gallery space.
Sarah’s most current work is based on research about the collective subconscious and recalled experience. Her dedication to developing her painting technique over several years has produced a complex yet easily recognisable style.
