Sarah Nolson is a self-taught artist, born in Middlesbrough and living in Hawes for the past 25 years.
A great love of colour began at a young age, along with a massive ‘doodling’ habit. Later, 6 months spent in India really intensified Sarah’s interest in colour & pattern. Initially her artworks were small, precise & constrained, using coloured pencils & pens. However, attending an art night class gave her the confidence to create larger works, mainly using acrylic paints & collage techniques therefore loosening up her style.
Music, colour and dance are what inspires Sarah to create, one shape expressed determines the next.
