Sarah Capes creates magical mixed media paintings that are multi layered with acrylic paint, collage, and stencils.

In the process the layers get covered up, scraped and sanded back leaving behind traces of what has gone before. Sarah makes prints using stencils and leaves with a Gelli pad which she incorporates into her work.

Always having quite a few sketchbooks on the go, taking them travelling with her across the world, Sarah has a fresh and wide ranging approach to her work. Her sketchbooks have visual notes from the farmland of west Hampshire to the souks of Morocco, and sing with colour, design ideas and experimentation.
