Sarah Horne is an artist living and working in Royal Leamington Spa. Practicing Sarah is a multi award winning self taught florist she competed with her botanical sculptures and amongst other awards she attained 3 Chelsea Flower Show gold medals for professional floristry. This is what led her to explore drawing.
In 2014 Sarah worked on a project to take Leamington Spa to ‘Chelsea’ when asked to produce drawings of her designs for the catalogue Sarah’s answer was ‘I can’t draw! The project manager’s reply… ‘ You’re so creative of course you can! The results were more of a surprise to Sarah than anyone.
Her medium is an unforgiving one, through which texture is everything…fineliner pens . Her inspiration is of course botanicals. The drawings are very detailed and evocative of the victorian botanical drawings but with a contemporary twist.
An unexpected diagnosis for breast cancer in 2021 gave Sarah time to investigate watercolours , oil pencils and acrylics and oil paints …. and another love affair began adding colour to the exciting textures… watch this space!
