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 Education which in turn led to an apprenticeship in restoration and conservation. Throughout her studies and restoration work she has always painted and is largely self - taught. Despite her love for restoration it became clear that her passion for paint was moving in to a more personal direction and Sarah welcomed the gradual shift of being able to spend more time in her Wimbledon studio. Whilst concentrating on her own art she also embraced a two-year stint as artist in residence at Kensington Prep where she devised and taught history of art related projects to the children. She now paints full time and is a mother to two wonderful children.
