Sarah Jane Conklin

Artist Statement
Atlantic Canada’s romantic landscape, wild beauty and delightful birds has inspired me for over 20 years. Our diverse forests, waterfalls, change of season and birds with personality provide endless inspiration. These elements of nature in a kaleidoscopic environment are my primary interest. Motion and mystique are created through deliberate entanglements of brushstrokes, rich colour contrast, the chance effect of impasto, and the innate luminosity of oil paint. Painting alla prima allows every painting to exude its own energy and excitement. I want viewers to escape, even for a brief moment, into my romantic world.
