‘Haring through the seasons’ will depict various Cotswold landscapes throughout the seasons with signs of a Hare galloping in and out of the scenes. 

Winter farmland will show snow covered farmland with the hare’s footprints just visible. The morning mist is rising and snowflakes are starting to fall. 

Spring woodland will show the Cotswold woodlands coming to life with verdant greens and new shoots. A silhouette of the hare will be visible darting in and out of the trees. 

Summer meadows will show the fields with their wild flowers and resident insects. The hare’s ears will be visible as he bounds through the flowers and wild grass. 

Autumn hedgerows will show the turning of the colours alongside the roads and pathways. The hare’s tail will be disappearing into a gap in the hedgerow.

Midlands born Sarah Vonthron-Laver is an Illustrator and toy designer who’s never happier than when her hands are covered in China Ink. She lives in North Somerset UK with her family who give her inspiration for the many things she draws. She has a number of books published in the UK and South Korea, and designs soft toys for a UK based toy company, many of which have gone on to be best sellers 

She has more recently rediscovered a love for producing fine art. Experimenting with different medias, she had a needle felt sculptural piece chosen to be displayed as part of an arts trail currently running at Beningbrough Hall NT. And also took part in an exhibition about the topographies and landscapes of Bristol producing a series of lino cuts inspired by a hot air balloon flight she took. 

 

Vibrant colours play a very important part in her work, as she wishes to transmit the simple joy we can find in our natural environment. She does not aim to produce realistic representations of her subjects, but to capture the character 

Sarah has a particular interest in creating pieces about animals and having spent many happy day trips as a child to the Cotswolds, is thrilled to be taking part in the Cotswold’s Hare trail.
