“A Day in the Life” with Contemporary Artist Sarah Tomlinson

Sarah Tomlinson is a passionate contemporary artist from Canada, known for her vibrant and intricate artwork. Her art mainly focuses on women, with themes revolving around personal freedom, connection and empowerment. Sarah started her creative journey 6 years ago, as a way to heal from Domestic Abuse. She is primarily a self-taught artist. Her acrylic paintings and coloured pencil drawings often feature bold colours, patterns, and fine details that draw the viewer in and captivate them. Art has always been a personal journey for Sarah, and she shares it with her audience as she grows and heals as a woman.

Sarah’s art is well-received by both local and international collectors. Her work has been displayed in a local gallery, art markets and music festivals. She continues to create stunning pieces that are full of life and energy. Sarah’s story is an inspiration to anyone who has faced adversity and found a way to turn it into something beautiful. Her art not only showcases her talent but also serves as a reminder of the strength and resilience of women. Whether you’re a fan of contemporary art or just appreciate beauty in all its forms, Sarah Tomlinson’s work is sure to leave a lasting impression.
