As a Fine Art Printmaker, Sarah specialises in hand-inked, collagraph prints, originally inspired by the Dorset landscape. Having relocated to the West Coast of Scotland in 2013, her work is now strongly influenced by the dramatic, rugged scenery of her new home.
Using carefully constructed collage blocks, her work combines the vibrant colours of oil-based printing inks with the textural qualities of the collage materials used in her collagraph blocks. Materials such as lichen, string, tissue and salt. This combination produces a distinctive look that makes her work instantly recognisable.
Following a degree in English and Classics in London, Sarah returned to her first love, Art, studying at Bournemouth College of Art and Design. On graduating, her work was selected for the National Print Exhibition in 1997 at the Mall Galleries and this prompted a solo show in London later that year. Her work has become increasingly recognisable and she is now a regular house artist for a number of galleries across the UK. In 2014 her work featured in a coffee table book on trees in America, 'Green Art: Trees, Roots and Leaves'. In 2015 she was featured in an article in the French magazine, Pratique des Arts and was also selected for the Royal Scottish Academy Winter Exhibition.
