About Regency Shaun

Inspired by the eclectic style and opulence of Brighton’s Royal Pavilion, which was built during the Regency era as a seaside escape for King George IV. The architecture style of the Pavilion is a colourful blend of artistic influences from Indian, Mughal, European, and Chinese cultures.

Modern, elegant, and bursting with colour, Sarah Arnett’s artwork draws on her life experiences: growing up in Zimbabwe, travelling through India, and living in Brighton.
