Featured Shop - Bath Art Works

Our Featured Shop for October is Bath Art Works by Sarah Drew.

I asked Sarah some questions about her amazing designs!





Have you always been artistic?

I have loved to draw, paint and make for as far back as I can remember. As I child I preferred making dolls clothes and furniture rather then playing with the dolls!





Are you professionally trained as an artist?

I studied art at Bath College and Textile Design at Weston College, before undertaking a career in the Law Sector.





So like many other people have did you come back to art after your Law career?

My love of drawing and design never disappeared.  After having a family and settling in a rural location, I was able to pick up my paint brushes again. 


Where do you get your inspiration from?

I am passionate about the British countryside, animals, and nature and this is where I gather much of my inspiration. I also love anything vintage and have always enjoyed browsing around vintage markets and antique fairs.   




Your products are really amazing, what else makes them special for a buyer?

All my products are made in England. In the process helping to reduce my carbon foot print. 




What is your working environment like?

I work in my studio which is in my garden. I am very fortunate to live in a rural location, so my studio is surrounded by countryside. Which is great for me, as I gather much of my inspiration from nature. 





Can you tell us a little about your design process?

I usually start with a drawing or painting, which may have been influenced by a sketch, magazine photo, computer image or fabric pattern.  I work in a range of mediums including, pen and ink, charcoal, acrylic, water colour, and lino print. I will then reproduce the image, as a print, greeting card, fabric design or piece of crockery.








We certainly think that Sarah has a wonderful range in her shop - perfect for people starting their "Seasonal" shopping!  Pop over and have a look at the full range in her wonderful shop at Bath Art Works.
