PORTFOLIO

The categories below show my work past and present. I realise there is nothing more frustrating than looking through pieces of artwork wanting to buy, and finding SOLD stickers on all of them.
I can only say that it gives you an idea of the work that I am capable of, and if you are interested in an original, it's always worthwhile popping in the shop to see what is on display.

Sarah Ashby Jewellery Enamels

It's strange that the enamel jewellery came after the enamel paintings...but they have proven to be very successful. I now have a website that you can purchase from directly {or come in the shop, of course}. Each picture has a link that will take you directly to the site.

Sarah Ashby Jewellery Polymer Clay

Polymer clay is finding a place as a genuine and acceptable medium for jewellery. And not before time! It certainly has a place in the market, and the skill involved with some clay artists is quite breathtaking. My interpretations can be seen here, and are for sale on the website below.
Each picture has a link that will take you directly to it.

Enamels

Since I got {ok, pestered my husband} for a kiln a year or so back, I've been having a great time playing with enamels. They don't always come out how I plan, but that's part of the fun. They are completely lightfast, so are the perfect picture for a sunny room.

Acrylic Inks

Acrylic Inks are a fabulous medium. Used neat, the colours are so vibrant..but they can be watered down to achieve wonderful tonal effects.

Mixed Media

Who said landscapes have to be green and brown? Texture plays as big a part as colour in these paintings, and as a consequence, they are very tactile.

Pen, Ink and Watercolour

A more traditional style here. Probably the start of my painting journey. I still go back to pen and ink when I get 'painter's block'.

Glass Paintings

Glass paint can be used in a classical manner {see magnolia}, but also, if poured onto glass, more abstract images can be formed.

Pastels

I have to be in the mood to get messy when I use pastels. The freedom you get when using them is unlike any other medium.

Sarah's Photos

Portraits and landscapes. Please don't look if you are a professional photographer!

Oils

I love oils, but because I am hugely impatient, I don't do too many of them.
