I would consider myself a Romantic Formalist.
I see artwork as a nonverbal emotional discussion about being human; the idea of artwork being felt rather than thought.
My work is created through deconstructing and reconstructing flesh using exaggerated lines and colours. A study of line, shape and colour with the hope of an emotional undertone.
Our flesh is a transparent organ and hardly homogeneous with all the colours and shapes influenced by a living organism beneath it. With no standard ubiquitous ‘Flesh Tone’ I have plenty of room to explore.

Sarah Marie Lacy is an award-winning Ottawa-based artist and teacher who makes art about grace, connection and our humanity. She works primarily in oil and pencil and is fascinated by the stories our bodies tell and works from life as often as possible. She trained in France under master artists and is part of a 500 year lineage stretching back to Renaissance Italy. She has been a finalist in the Kingston Prize for portraiture and has won a Certificate of Excellence at the Portrait Society of America’s International Portraiture Competition, and recently won first prize in The Artist’s Magazine’s annual art competition in the portrait/figure category. She also teaches figure drawing and portraiture from her studio here in Ottawa.
Luminescence, colour, texture and flow. For me, it¹s all about the medium. I’m fascinated by glass and all its wonderful possibilities. As an artist, I begin with my medium and the joy I feel in seeing and imagining the piece I’m going to create. Then the medium plays its own part in the outcome of my work. We interact. I pursue and the glass responds. The limitations of kiln and cutter, blade and blaster, frit and fragment, all conspire to an end point that maybe neither of us quite imagined. My art is the art of conjoining with my medium, conspiring and cajoling it, and at times consenting to its mastery to discover, in the end, a thing of beauty.

Barbara’s studio practice is drawing, the most intimate and delicate of visual media. Her subject matter ranges from still life to portraiture of people and animals, and the occasional side-step into landscape. Barbara’s still lifes of ordinary household objects celebrate our connections to our heritage and the serene monumentality of everyday things. Her work is recognized for its distinct luminous quality and intimate warmth.
