Sarah's work entered the main stream in late 2006 when the Royal Yacht Hotel commissioned her for several pieces for their grand opening in Jersey. She has exhibited a number of times in the UK since that date with her label SARAH MAIE ART and works with many Interior Design companies such as IDP. Today her works remain immensely popular in restaurants, hotels and houses around the globe. Sarah now paints to commission, which she finds immensely satisfying. Her work is collected by national and international clients.
Inspired by the works of Alberto Giacometti, Monet and influenced by Japanese manga, Sarah Maie is a talented visual artist who lives and works in Berkshire, United Kingdom. Born in London and educated in London Schools of Art & Design, at a young age she studied life drawing and concentrated on figurative illustration. Although painting was always her first passion Sarah worked for many years with sculpture and photography. In her twenties and after her education, Sarah chose a career path to develop her commercial awareness within the corporate industry where she worked designing and developing packaging and corporate identity projects.
Now in her mid thirties she works from her home studio and has returned to her first love of creating on canvas and has never looked back.
Sarah's work is diverse, modern, abstract and contemporary in style, using a range of mixed media to achieve rich textures and vibrant colours. Sarah's paintings are original and unique. They explore the relationships between texture and light, are created with and empowered by emotion, they experiment with colour and depth and reach far beyond the visually apparent form to stimulate the viewers senses. Each artwork is one of a kind and virtually impossible to reproduce. It is this uniqueness as well as high artistic standards which make them a desirable addition to any art collection and a solid investment.
The level of satisfaction she reaches from creating works of art which are sought and displayed by a wide range of collectors is immense. The very fact that she is colouring a small corner of the world with her paintings is truly a precious part of her life.
