Sarah Waghorn is a painter 

who likes to explore bushland, gardens and interiors.

The thread which ties them together is highlighted by the strong Australian daylight bathing the scene in a burst of colour and form.

Inspiration for her landscapes comes from the native plants and trees witnessed on walks around local and coastal bushland. It is the intimacy of the forms of flowers and leaves that draws her in rather than the expanse of a grand vista. Often large-scale forms are the key to the dynamism of her paintings and the expressive mark-making in her brushstrokes which add to their movement.

She has been a recent finalist in The Muswellbrook, Calleen, Waverley and National Capital Art prizes, and shown in a number of group shows in regional NSW and Melbourne.
