Dublin Street Scenes

Sarah loves cycling around the city taking photographs of all landmark buildings that she feels come alive with the help of the people that feature in them. Her painting of the Foggy Dew pub shows a group of guys who had been up all night and were on the way home when they featured in the shot. The city changes so quickly, places seem to come and go. A pub that was painted a few years ago might not even be there anymore. The Bernard Shaw is one of these pubs.

Dublin Pub Scenes

The Dublin pub scene is extremely popular and Sarah has received many commissions to paint the various pubs around the city. She paints a lot of Dublin pubs on request from people who have met their future wife/husband/ best friend in these bars. They are nostalgia pieces that represent moments in time for many people.

New York Commission

A few years ago, Sarah had the honour of being invited to New York to paint some of the city’s most iconic buildings. She was given artistic license to paint the buildings that she thought represented the city the most. She spent a week there taking photographs and talking to people on the street to get both the New Yorkers and tourists’ opinions on what the most iconic buildings were. From that she came up with this 12-piece collection that now forms part of a private art collection. All paintings are 60cm x 80cm.

 New York Snap Shots

The snapshots series stemmed from the New York commission. They are snapshots of the city on a smaller scale representing everyday life. The bin truck, the yellow cab taking someone to work. New York really is the city that never sleeps. All paintings are on a box canvas and are 8” x 10”.
