Sarah Horne is an artist living and working in Royal Leamington Spa. Having failed her art O’level, she turned to floral art and is now a multi award winning self taught florist. Sarah 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 a creative of course you can! The results were more of a surprise to Sarah than anyone.
Her medium was unforgiving one, through which texture is everything…fine liner ink 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 colour through watercolours and then acrylics…. and another love affair began adding colour to the exciting textures that are always at the fore in Sarah’s work.
