Sara Lee Roberts
Sara studied at Byam Shaw School of Art and Sussex University. She then trained as a restorer at the Hamilton Kerr Institute at Cambridge University. As a restorer she worked on paintings at the Wallace Collection and the Royal Collection. On moving to Paris she decided to paint full time and made work which led to her first solo show.

She has exhibited widely, has won the Discerning Eye Prize and has paintings in public collections. In 2008 she studied at the Royal Drawing School on The Drawing Year postgraduate programme, where she won the Paintings in Hospitals Prize. She has taught adults on a one-to-one basis for many years and since 2013 has been teaching painting and drawing at the Royal Drawing School.
