Sarah Burwash grew in up in Rossland, B.C. and graduated from the University of British Columbia Okanagan in 2009 with an interdisciplinary BFA.
Working in a variety of media from illustration and animation, to ceramics and installation, Burwash’s work most often takes form in narrative watercolour paintings.
Her work is included in private and public collections internationally and has been shown in Canada, USA and in Europe.
