Sarah Amos was born in rural England where cooking and painting were part of her family's tradition. After coming to Vancouver in 1968 she was associated with the Western Front Society of avant garde artists with whom she participated in performance and video activities. After extensive travel in Europe, Japan and Southeast Asia, she married artist and writer Robert Amos and settled in the lovely seaside city of Victoria on Vancouver Island in 1981. That turned out to be the perfect place to paint, garden and raise their two daughters. You can see more of Sarah Amos' artwork on her website at sarahamos.com.
