About Me

My name is Sarah Gregoire. I’m a 29 year old artist from the Netherlands. When I was 12 years old I started painting and drawing. I come from a creative family and from an early age on I felt the need to express myself in a creative way. Painting and drawing always helped me to express my feelings when I didn’t feel like talking to anyone, in good times and bad times.                      
I never stopped making art, I don’t only draw and paint, but I like to experiment with new materials and techniques. I would describe my work as colorful and sometimes strange. I paint whatever I'm inspired by at that moment. Most of the time it's beautiful people that interest me that inspire me to make a painting. Things and people you might recognize in my work are Frida Kahlo and her artwork, tattoos, music, animals, worries, movies, friends and lots more.

I just finished my studies and can now call myself an art therapist. I see painting as a kind of therapy for myself at times. I am also a baker at American Bakery De Drie Graefjes in Amsterdam, where you can now see two of my paintings permanently.

I hope you enjoy the pictures of my work.I put them in different categories, that you can find in the menu on the left. The pictures go from most recent to least recent work.

If you are interested in buying my work or if you want me to paint something especially for you, please let me know! My contact information is on top of the menu. Also check out the Expo list on the bottom left to see where you can see my art in real life!
