As a Fine Art Printmaker, Sarah specialises in hand-inked, original collagraph prints inspired by the British countryside. 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 blocks.
Sarah spent her childhood in a surprisingly unflat part of Norfolk aptly named Upper Stoke Holy Cross, just outside Norwich. Surrounded by fields and woodland, her love of the landscape was founded early on and she developed her technique of taking mental snapshots while out walking. These snapshots or ‘memories of journeys’ are recorded on her return to be worked up into paintings and prints at a later date.
Her passion for art began when an inspirational art teacher at Norwich High School took an interest in her work and encouraged her to explore printmaking during her A Level studies. Following a degree in English and Classics in London, Sarah returned to her first love, art, studying at Bournemouth College of Art and Design. Specialising in Printmaking allowed her to explore a variety of techniques including lino, etching and collagraphy.
