Sara Wilson holds a Fine Art Diploma through the studio based studies at Victoria College of Art. Her studies were focused primarily on traditional drawing and painting techniques and mediums, along with some exploration in clay sculpture.
The human figure is often the subject of her paintings, as she is enthralled by the endless opportunity to create stories or capture memories through the cropping of forms to discover interesting compositions. She works primarily with oil paint on canvas or wood. Sara also draws daily, filling many sketchbooks with illustrations in pen, ink and watercolour.
Sara’s paintings have been on display in group shows at Hot Art Wet City, Coast Collective, The Sooke Fine Art Show, Madrona Gallery, Olio, The Apartment Gallery and Red Art Gallery. In 2012, Sara won the 1st place peoples choice award at The Victoria Emerging Art Awards.
