About Sabine Rehm
Sabine Rehm was interested in animals and science so she went to vet school, specialized in pathology and earned a successful living as veterinary pathologist and research scientist for 30 years.
In 2010, Sabine was privileged to turn a new page, making art an important part of her life, painting as she sees nature. Her art education included classes locally at the Main Line School Night, Main Line Art Center and the Wayne Art Center where she also served as volunteer. In addition, she attends workshops and participates in art and critique groups. Sabine is a member of the Delaware Valley Art League, the Wayne Art Center and Historic Yellow Springs.
Sabine also has a large woodland garden that she designed and for 20 years now keeps redesigning and maintained after natural disasters - and despite all the deer! There are ponds, paths and pretty sitting areas. She has won a blue ribbon from the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society. Art groups and friends have come to paint in the garden. Every month of the year new flowers emerge presenting as great models for paintings! This explains a deep personal connection to her floral art.
Sabine's painting style is representative, sometimes with a mystical appeal. All paintings displayed on this website are oils, some in combination with cold wax, but she has also painted using watercolors and acrylics. Recently, Sabine was introduced to En Plein Air painting by the great artist and teacher Randall Graham. She learned to handle the challenges of painting outside and an efficient approach of painting to capture the scene in time. She painted at Valley Forge, Chanticleer and local farms.
Sabine enjoys participating in art shows and is very encouraged that her work has been chosen for many juried shows along the Main Line and in Philadelphia. She was given several awards, including the one shown here at the Wayne Art Center for "Shells on the Beach" in 2019. Sabine feels her life is greatly enriched making new friends in the art world, finding her work appreciated and she is eager to advance her skills.
