Sabari Sen has had a passion for painting since before she can remember. She was born in India and spent her formative years there. In stark contrast to the hustle and bustle of her city life, she found herself innately drawn towards rural landscapes and nature of the countryside, The memories of summer holidays at Grandpa and Grandma’s home being surrounded with lush green lands, trees and rivers inspired her to pick up a brush for the first time. With a unique eye for detail, her paintings exude a calmness and serenity that always aims to strike a nostalgic tone with the viewer.
After graduating Sabari started her working career as an animation artist at an Advertising Agency which allowed her to experiment with various medias. She was always keen to put her talent to work commercially at different advertising agencies, before settling in the UK in 1990.
Sabari continued to pursue her artistic career in the UK and expanded her subject matter to also include portraiture and ceramics. She had the opportunity and privilege to work under the guidance of some established artists and has successfully diversified her work by becoming a trained ceramic artist from Swanspool Ceramics in Northamptonshire.
Sabari currently creates her own style of ceramic pieces: this style incorporates a unique blend of Eastern influences, with many vibrant colours, fluid shapes and intricacy, combined with Western designs, to give a unique path to her pottery, creating a distinctive style. In recent years she has been working on several commissioned projects from the UK and abroad.
