About Sarah

Our Story

Sarah Cowley’s art brings joy and wonderment to the viewer whether it be a sculpture, an etching, a mask or diorama. Interestingly, Sarah’s formal studies have been in the fields of horticulture and medicine. She lives a life of adventure and exploration. All this is strongly reflected in her art work.

Sarah’s art has been shown in private galleries, public galleries and
internationally. She works mostly alone but enjoys working collaboratively with other artists to support and promote new cultural initiatives. Sarah has received several awards for her art pieces.

Using many media gives Sarah space to follow creative urges. She begins with a strong design, an armature and adds layer upon layer until the personality of the piece presents itself. This is the wild card which always surprises and delights her.

Sarah’s studio is in Beaverton, Ontario.
