Based in Scotland and Ireland Sarah Carrington (b. 1977) is well known for her evocative paintings of the Isle of Mull, Iona and the coastline around her native Edinburgh
Carrington’s work draws the viewer into the landscape through an expansive range of marks, from exquisite foreground delicacy to bold movement in the distant sky. Layers of acrylics, emulsions and oils work alongside inks and chalk to create rich fields of weathered texture and translucent light that capture the shifting moods and spirit of the coast.
Carrington graduated from Edinburgh Collage of Art and now lives in Ireland. She still makes regular trips back to Scotland and in particular Mull and Iona.
