Summer 2017

I am writing this on the longest day during a heatwave that looks like it will rival the one that looms largest in the UK memory; 1977. The flowers outside are beginning to wilt in the heat but the Studio & gallery are cool and airy thanks. It is the perfect place for me to pick up the paintbrush again after the mayhem of Chelsea Flower Show and for you to browse the re-hung gallery space.

New things to view and buy

The range of greeting cards and prints has been updated with a total of ten new images drawn from the latest portfolio. Three images are also availiable as large canvas or paper prints in truly breathtaking quality. Seen in the 'Print' gallery they depict hellebores, ranunculus and amelanchier. 

I am also developing a new range of tablemats and trays in time for the Burnham Market Craft Fare on 19th August. They will of course be available online for those of you further afield than the English Summertime.

The annual exhibition of the Society of Botanical Artist in Westminster has moved this year from the usual mid April to 13th to 21st October with the title 'Changing Seasons'.  Be sure not to miss it if you are in London at the right time. 

I do hope you will come to see us at the Walsingham Gallery if you are in the area. Otherwise, keep an eye on the website and order your choices online.

If you are planning on visiting the Studio at Great Walsingham Barns it is open 10am til 4.30pm Tuesday to Sunday. If you want to make sure that I am there rather than a colleague, please email or phone ahead as I would not want to miss you.

Facebook Twitter and Instagram are up and running for the most up to date info.

If you would like to receive messages via email regarding new work or exhibitions, please write to me at sarah@sarahcaswell.co.uk 

Original Paintings

Original pieces are available from this site (available pieces are indicated in the 'Originals' tab.  the archive of sold pieces are seen in 'Gallery' & 'Commissions'). You can also visit Sarah at her studio which is open most days at Walsingham Barns, Hindringham Road, Great Walsingham, Norfolk, NR22 6DR.  If you make a long journey, please do phone ahead (07747613395) to make sure it is a painting day!

Sarah will also consider your commissions incorporating a favourite flower or composing a piece of a specific size for your space - take a look at the 'Gallery' and 'Commissions' pages to see what collectors own already.

Reproductions

Practical Reproductions - I am a strong believer in giving you the opportunity to see the flowers at a time and place (and price) that suits you and so have always included reproductions that are practical. 

A growing selection of Sarah's images are now available as reproductions. These are the 4 images available as tablemats and coasters from 11th August...

From the start, prints and greetings cards have formed a key part of the range. Prints range from £25 to £495 and cards for £2.50 each.  All images appear on the 'prints' or 'greeting cards' pages where details of format, size and prices are being added all the time.

New items have been added or updated;

Calendars - there are a few 2017 annual calendars remaining. When they are gone you will have to wait for the 2018 version! In the meantime I have updated the Birthdays calendar having sold out of all the previous versions and the images for the current version can be viewed under the Calendars tab

Melamine Tablemats - 18 images have been turned into beautiful melamine mats with thick board and green baize backings. Coasters, tablemats and large mats/servers are available in tough, hardwearing melamine.

Glass Worktop Savers, Platters & Coasters - Recylced, toughened glass, built to withstand 280 degrees and dishwasher safe in 4 designs. Oh and they look stunning when you prop them up on the window sill with the light shining through...#servingsuggestion

Birchwood Trays - The latest item added to the range. After an extensive search, I found these fabulous handmade Swedish birchwood trays. They are robust, light, dishwasher safe and certified sustainable wood...oh and reproduce my paintings ridiculously well...3 designs to start things rolling. See what you think...?

Tablemats, Worktop Savers and Trays all available under the Tableware tab

Trade prices are available on request.

About Sarah

Sarah attended the Sir John Cass School of Art in London where she attained a BA in Silversmithing. During this time she explored three dimensional art and design in non-ferrous metals. Sarah has also spent time in the commercial fashion world; working as a milliner for Stephen Jones in London and running an outlet selling her own fashion/millinery/jewellery designs in Melbourne, Australia. Throughout this time (and during a sojourn into the world of finance and share dealing) Sarah retained her love of traditional painting.

Sarah Supports Fight For Sight

As a painter of really large, really bright paintings...and having slightly dodgy vision Sarah has chosen to lend support to "Fight for Sight" which funds research into the prevention and treatment of blindness and eye disease helping people to RETAIN their sight.  Sarah's first fund raising effort for them was an entry into the 2011 London Marathon and a donation on sales proceeds.

A Just Giving page has been set up to make donating simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving – they’ll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they’ll send your money directly to the charity and make sure Gift Aid is reclaimed on every eligible donation by a UK taxpayer. So it’s the most efficient way to donate - whilst saving time and cutting costs for the charity. There is a link to the Just Giving page on the 'home' and 'contact' pages of this website.

Copyright

A note about copyright.  Sarah claims the copyright on all images of her original paintings.  The sale of an original does not confer the rights on the purchaser and so representations of the image may subsequently appear as prints or other material.  Limited rights can be licensed to allow third parties to use an image.  Rights can also be purchased together with the original painting.
