Sarah Wimperis is a painter and illustrator who was born in Kent. She graduated from Falmouth School of Art in 1981 and spent many years travelling, including six years in Norway, teaching art, and four years in France, before settling in Manaccan in Cornwall. She has been a regular exhibitor at Beside the Wave in Falmouth since 2008.

In the summer of 2016 Sarah Wimperis travelled to Gdansk, Poland, as the only English oil painter among a 95-strong international team of artists selected to participate in the creation of an animated film on Vincent van Gogh, entitled 'Loving Vincent'. The film is due for release in 2017.
