’12 Boats’ by Sarah Egholm is currently on display in an Lanntair’s bar and café.
This collection of fresh canvases depicts 12 working boats in Tobermory Harbour on the Isle of Mull, observed and sketched throughout the summer of 2011. Sarah graduated from Chelsea College of Art & Design in 2008, with a First Class BA (Hons) degree in Textile Design, specialising in screen printing and eco processes. Sarah is inspired by the master abstract painters of her ancestral homeland, the Faroe Islands, where the subject matter is often the natural environment, boats and the sea!
“My style of drawing seeks to capture the essence of what I see, whilst setting out to be as experimental and free as possible. I hope my images express a sense of playful abstraction and spontaneity. I am always seeking the beauty of imperfection”.
