Oxford-based artist Sarah Simblet has been working with us to capture the beauty of the OneOak tree. We are privileged to have had a sneak preview of her unfinished drawing of the OneOak tree. It perfectly depicts the grandeur of the OneOak tree and the tangled mass of its branches.
Author of the highly acclaimed Anatomy for the Artist and The Drawing Book, Sarah is an artist, writer, and freelance lecturer in drawing. She teaches at the National Gallery in London and at the University of Oxford, where she is a member of Wolfson College and has her studio. Sarah has drawings in national and private collections, makes solo shows, and takes part in contemporary art exhibitions.
Sarah is also a broadcaster and conference speaker in art and science, contributing to programmes on BBC television and radio. In 2005 she presented Life Class on BBC. Sarah has a lifelong passion for plants, gardening, and natural history.
This week her latest publication was released: Botany for the Artist. It is a stunning book. She collaborated with Sam Scott-Hunter and Silke Spingies to produce the book, both of whom are also involved in the OneOak project.
