Sarah McComb-Turbitt

Painting

Sarah, a Marine Biologist turned artist and new mom, has dedicated her life to wildlife conservation. Born and returned to Grey Bruce, her journey from researching whales and penguins to the vibrant art world has created a unique collision point between the science and art worlds. In 2018 Sarah discovered Artists for Conservation (AFC) when she came across ‘Silent Skies,’ a collaborative mural at a conference by AFC members depicting all 678 endangered species of birds. Inspired by this experience, she immersed herself in wildlife art and was accepted as an associate member in 2019. Since then, Sarah has achieved standing in the top 200 artworks featured in AFC’s annual juried exhibit the past three years and was awarded signature status in 2022. Now, from her studio in Owen Sound, Ontario, she captures both wildlife and her adventures in paint. As a signature member of Artists for Conservation, Sarah shares a united vision to preserve and sustain our natural heritage. Her work is not just art but a powerful tool to capture the unique behaviours of animals and foster a deeper appreciation for our planet’s diversity. Sarah’s ultimate goal is to enhance the connection between the viewer and the natural world and create a window into the sentimental moments in the lives of animals. Since transitioning to painting full-time in 2020, she has supported conservation with every wildlife work created.
