Sarah Spackman RBA ROI


Sarah Spackman is a contemporary figurative artist particularly well known for her still life oil paintings. She works from a studio in Oxford that was once a punt building workshop.

Her practise focuses on the principle that good drawing is the basis of good painting and that colour should be used to enhance the organisation and definition of observed space and form. Sarah works in a considered way, with close observation.

Sarah trained at Byam Shaw School of Art, London and graduated from Camberwell School of Art in 1981. She was elected as a member of the Royal Society of British Artists RBA in 2019, and a member of the Royal Institute of Oil Painters ROI, in 2022. She is also a member of the Small Paintings Group and the Oxford Art Society. Sarah’s work is in many private collections world wide as well as the collection of the Allied Irish Bank. Her work has also been selected for the Jerwood Drawing Competition, the NEAC, the ROI, the RBA and the Discerning Eye Exhibitions. Sarah exhibits regularly with several galleries throughout the UK.Sarah was born in 1958.
