About Sarah Marie Lacy

I make art for the brave but wary.
I make art for the wounded but walking.
I make art for the courageous yet jaded.
I make art for the people who want to feel more at home in their bodies.
I make art for the survivors figuring out how to thrive.
I make art to comfort, to nourish.
I make art to face the darkness.
I make art to embrace the light.
I make art to be honest with myself.
I make art to be honest with each other.
I make art for the messiness that is life: fragile/strong/broken/healed.
I make art to honour your journey, whatever that is.

I make art to honour you. Your body. Your strength. Your wounds. Your scars. Your triumphs.

I am a painter, draughtswoman and teacher who is endlessly fascinated by the human body in all of its intricacy, subtlety, grace and vulnerability. I am an observer of light and shadow, both literal and metaphorical.


I create portraits on commission: everything from small pencil sketches at an affordable price to family oil paintings to large-scale official commissions for institutions and businesses. Click the button below to find out more and contact me today to find out how you can create your legacy.
