UK born artist Sarah Danes-Jarrett grew up in Zimbabwe and studied commercial art. In 1998 she left her design career when she became a mother, it was at this time that she picked up her first canvas and paint.
Danes-Jarrett is known for her large format, powerful and colourful portraits of women that command the viewer's attention. Her works are exquisiely bright with a block-work brushstyle.
"My style is paradoxically chaotic and controlled. Brazen and agressive brush strokes form soft curves, precisely cut with a sharp edge."
