Sara Hurley is bringing attention to the dynamic between the gallery, the audience and the artist". Robert Goodchild
I paint flowing, atmospheric watercolour paintings in various sizes - the bigger the better! I love the colour and natural movement of the pigments in water and always look for new ways to use that in my work. This creates loose, soft landscapes full of light and life that you can imagine yourself walking into.
