Sarah Hunter moved to Kingston in 2003 from Oxfordshire, England where she worked for over twenty years as a graphic designer and illustrator. Sarah now works with encaustic, a medium of wax mixed with oil which when fused together by heat have a wonderful luminous and textural quality. "A sense of place is very important to me and by painting the Ontario landscape it has grounded me creating an attachment to this place which is now my home. I aim to suggest my subject, exploring the balance between representation and invention with the hope a kind of distillation has taken place where the essence of the landscape comes softly through."
