ABOUT THE ARTIST

Welcome to my art studio! I'm Sarah Urban, a Romantic-Impressionist painter that is obsessed with nature, trees and my dog! I capture the magic and beauty of Canadian landscapes through my quick brushstrokes, lighting and own personal experiences.


Even though I create primarily for myself, my work has been well received by collectors and shows. If you would like to talk about commissions, or if you have a specific project you would like to propose, please do not hesitate to email me.

BACKGROUND

From Childhood to Now

I have been obsessed with art since I was 2 years old and painted the underside of my parents kitchen table in mustard. I grew up in Brantford, Ontario in a home with two loving parents and three sisters. I was always a creative person, as I loved art, theatre, film, and creating YouTube videos. Throughout my younger years I experimented with many different styles until I landed on Romantic-Impressionism. I have been building my technical and conceptual skills with the completion of my B.F.A from McMaster University. I am a Landscape Artist, who creates Landscape Prints and Original Paintings, but I am always exploring styles and ideas within my work.

WHAT INSPIRES THE WORK

I have spent my entire life canoeing, hiking, and exploring all around Canada, from the mountains in B.C to the quaint Eastern Townships in Quebec. As an Artist I follow my intuition when it comes to original paintings, I let my feelings, memories and reference photos guide my hand when painting. I look at the world as a Landscape Painting and always aspire to capture the magic and beauty within nature. I find inspiration for my artwork everywhere, and do not limit myself.

 

MY MEDIUM

I use many different mediums, such as oil paint, acrylic paint, digital art, print making and mixed media. I believe that working in a single medium is restrictive to my artistic process. Each idea manifests their own Landscape Prints, and the freedom allows each piece to blossom and magically unfold into its truest form. I believe each artwork has a medium that is best suited to help me tell the story of the piece, which allows me to use a wide range of mediums.
