Welcome to my website...

Having been known to many of you as Sarah CHANIN , I now  paint under my maiden name, Sarah PRESSLAND. Partly to honour the name of a previous artist who was my Great Aunt, Annie Louisa PRESSLAND (1862 – 1923). Annie Louisa remained unmarried and made her living as a watercolour artist and was well - known in her day for her paintings of peoples private houses and gardens.  Salmon Calendars published a lot of her work.

My own paintings are in oil. I hesitate to claim the title of ‘Artist’ but I paint and draw in a broad and lively style, not looking for detail but for characteristic presence.

Thank you for coming to my website, I do hope you enjoy looking at my paintings.
