Sara Philpott

A painter and printmaker living and working in mid Wales whose work is shown throughout Britain. Her current work frequently reflects the dialogue between the botanical and the human and is usually narrative in nature.

The paintings are often built up with coloured oil glazes and are sometimes detailed depictions of botanical events,rendered metaphorical by the emotional investment of the painter.

Often collaborating with poets and writers,her work with private presses such as Gwasg Gregynog and the Old Stile Press features in many National Collections.

Her printmaking and painting practices inform one another by turn.
