My name is Sarah Hill. I live in Durham City in the North East of England. For most of my working life I was a medical research scientist but I took a career break to have my three beautiful children and never managed to go back! Now all of my time is spent caring for my family and painting.
I started experimenting with watercolour a few years ago when I found myself almost completely incapacitated with an asthmatic condition. There is not much you can do when you can't breathe but I found I could paint. My very good friend Jenny Ulyatt was already an established watercolour artist and she started to teach me when she realised what a therapy it was for me. I never looked back. My asthma is now (mostly) under control - my painting is not!
