Amber Caspian Art

Sarah Turpin paints witches with a little kink in their personality, along with other magical characters and delightful creatures. She now sells them under the name Amber Caspian Art having sold a number of paintings, bookends and mirror frames under her pseudonym in the past.

Born in Folkestone, Kent and brought up in Thaxted, Sarah studied Art in Bristol, worked in London for several years in bookselling and then marketing for Penguin Children’s Books. While there she indulged her passion for art, books and stories and amassed a considerable collection of wonderful children’s illustrated books.

Sarah has loved witches and fairy tales since early childhood, enchanted by the drawings and silhouettes of Arthur Rackham and Jan Pienkowski. Later she turned creatively to this subject painting them in watercolour and ink.

I am inspired by folk and faery stories, dreams, nature, spirit, ancient landscapes and beautiful words, I write poems as part of my creative process. My recent travels across flame-coloured deserts in North America and frozen lakes in Arctic Sweden also greatly influence my work.
