Sarah Bee PS
Sarah gained a Dip AD in Graphic Design at Maidstone College of Art
And worked as a graphic designer for National Magazines.
Later she worked as a makeup artist and bodypainter for commercial photography and film.
Sarah studied painting at Heatherleys School of Fine art, and subsequently painted with the Blockley Group.
It was during this time that she was introduced to pastels.

Living in South Devon, Sarah draws inspiration from the landscape.
