Sarah is an artist.

Sarah creates 3D woven pieces that combine traditional craft techniques with contemporary yarns. Her working process begins with drawing and mark-making using words and emotions as inspiration for her pieces. Using recycled clothes, monofilament yarns and recycled plastic yarns, Sarah produces new materials from which she creates her work. Making stand-alone pieces and installations, her work aims to stimulate conversation and debate around different issues that affect many people. Sarah’s most recent work investigated the experience of loss, bereavement and grief, using her work to sensitively encourage discussion around this subject.
