About the Paintings

Sadie uses traditional layering and glazing techniques developed by the 17th century Dutch Masters to create her highly refined images.

Each painting requires up to ten thin layers of paint, sanding between each layer to create a glass-like surface.

Sadie works on one painting at a time, and spends about 4-6 weeks on each piece.
