Sarah Graham

 

British painter Sarah Graham was born in Hitchin in 1977, and works almost exclusively in oil on canvas. She completed a BA (hons) in Fine Art painting from De Montfort University, Leicester in 2000, and has been pursuing her practice ever since. From 2001 - 2007 she exhibited at independent galleries and art fairs in the UK and overseas. In 2007 she signed with a major UK fine art publisher, and her work became widely available as limited edition prints, alongside originals, throughout the UK.

 

Sarah's paintings are in private collections across the world, in Europe, the USA, Australia, the Middle East, China and South Africa.

In 2012, Sarah was commissioned by the British band Kaiser Chiefs to paint the album cover of their singles collection ‘Souvenir’, which was released worldwide. Her work is also owned by Standard Chartered Bank, who commissioned several pieces by Sarah, including a self-portrait, for their vast global collection of contemporary portraits.

 

As of the beginning of 2014, Sarah left the publishers to become independent again, and is working on new ideas for future shows and projects from her studio in Hitchin, Hertfordshire.
