Sara Penny-Collings is a coloured pencil artist and qualified Fine Art teacher living and working in Manchester Originally from Yorkshire, she was fortunate to grow up surrounded by rolling fields, farm animals and wildlife, all of which were a constant source of inspiration.

She began her Art career by studying Illustration at Manchester Metropolitan University before moving on to teaching Fine Art at Secondary School and College level. She has always preferred to work with coloured pencils and enjoy the precision and detail the medium allows me to achieve, although she is also proficient in digital illustration work, oil painting and ceramics.

Although teaching takes up most of her time, she loves creating portraits for clients in the evenings and weekends as a way to relax and share my skills with others.
