At the core of Sarah’s work is the experience of the here and now in partnership with landscape. It’s about slowing down, finding space, noticing and absorbing the moments that are happening right now and are not humanly orchestrated. A feeling perhaps of quiet contemplative solitude.
Sarah's working practice involves filling sketchbooks with drawings and watercolours of the same location, returning repeatedly over time in order to gain a deep understanding of her subject through the changing seasons, light and weather.
Born in 1970, Sarah studied at Oxford Polytechnic where she was mentored by Ivor Robinson MBE, Chairman of the Visual Studies Field honours degree. This degree combined the disciplines of painting, drawing, 3D studies, printmaking, photography, graphics, typographics and bookworks, and was the first course of its kind in Britain. She is an active member of The Dorset Salon, a selected fine art membership group that encourages critical debate.
Sarah shows her drawings, paintings and monotypes in traditionally hung exhibitions as well as large scale immersive solo installations which also include sound.
