Sarah Butterfield paints people on beaches, London tube stations at dusk, a busy street cafe and lovers on a motorbike disappearing into the shimmering summertime traffic … anything that contains a glint of fascination for the eye.
She has a particular gift for light. She paints the atmosphere and the time of day. She can capture a pose and what people are feeling.
Her paintings are owned by Jenny Agutter, Professor Brian Cox, Richard Curtis, John Humphreys, Charles Jencks, Rt Hon Michael Portillo, Lord Coe, HRH Prince of Wales, HM The Queen and Jon Snow.
Sarah has exhibited at major London galleries, including The Royal College of Art, Agnew’s, Cadogan Contemporary, Albemarle and Frost & Reed. She has also exhibited in New York, Hong Kong and Shanghai. Her work is in many public and private collections in Europe and America.
Sarah received the 2018 RBA award for her painting ‘Cakes for Tea’, at the Royal Society of British Artists at the Mall Galleries.
