Sarah Ollerenshaw is an artist with a background in fine art restoration. She studied Spanish and History of Art at Birmingham University and then took a postgraduate diploma at Christie's. She has recently finished a two year stint as artist in residence at a prep school in Fulham; she paints now full time. "There is something very evocative of childhood about a bluebell wood - I think one never forgets the first walk, seeing and smelling a bluebell wood for the first time...my paintings are meant to take you back to experience that delight and wonder one felt on first experiencing the woods in all their glory! One of my earliest childhood memories is singing 'In and out of the dusty bluebells' whilst holding hands with my grandmother and sister and dancing and weaving through a weeping willow in her garden. Whenever I see bluebells I think of that song and of that happy memory, which though now only fleeting, will always be etched firmly in my mind. My paintings hopefully resonate and inspire for a moment a spiritual transportation away from the busyness of life to another place where one feels alive and inspired by creation.'
