Sarah is best-known for here ‘en plein air’ paintings, created in oil. She has been painting Wimbledon for many years, particularly scenes in and around the Village.  Sarah Manolescue sells throughout the UK and abroad, and exhibits regularly, most recently at the New English Art Club Annual Exhibition 2018 (Mall Galleries, London).
