Sarah Reilly, moved to Suffolk 10 years ago, she is self-taught and has always enjoyed painting in her spare time and after much encouragement from friends she started selling her first designs and hasn’t looked back since.
Inspired by the local countryside and a passion for wildlife, she brings a host of charming characters to life that seem to jump straight out of her box of paints. Her style is vibrant and colourful, with a gentle humour, working with watercolours on calico fabric, a truly unique style was born. Sarah has now written poems to accompany many of her designs. She has illustrated a childrens books, produced her first calendar and is working on new projects for 2017.
Love Country is sure to appeal to anyone who loves the rustic charm of countrystyle living with her wildlife artwork now also available printed on a selection of gifts.
Sarah likes to be as involved with her customers as possible so attends many country and craft fairs in the area where she now also paints on her stall, after initial jitters of doing this in public! She is now getting used to it as visitors love to see the work come to life.
Sarah considers commissions so please contact her via the website if you have something special in mind.
