About Sara Alex Mullen

Characterized by bold strokes and vibrant colours, Sara’s work strives to depict landscapes that expose the many moods of nature. Intuition guides her colour choices and composition, with blue, gold, orange and purple among her signature colours. Sara’s work depicts classic Canadian landscapes, highlighting some of Ottawa’s most beautiful parks, such as Pine Hill, Stanley Park, and the Rockcliffe Rockeries.

“Once I started landscape painting, I started to experience my environment differently. Snow, pavement, and tress were no longer white or grey, but different hues of blues, purple, and pink. I started to notice the subtleties in colour variation and the unique colours that shadows display.”
