"I love experimenting with organzas, voiles, tulles—layering,fraying, overlapping to create depth of colour. Depending on the shades used the effect gives an impression of sea, sky or landscape.
I am inspired by the changing colours and textures of sea, sky and land depending on the weather conditions,the time of day or the season of the year."

My books, of which I am the author and illustrator, for young children combine several loves in my life – a small story with a smile, cats and that fabric is used as an art form.
All the illustrations in the books have been made in fabric then scanned for the printing process.
Once these print run of books are sold that will be the end of the availability of these books in print form.
Sarah is a painter of moody landscapes and other things!
Having been interested in sewing and textiles from a young age, I progressed through dressmaking, quilting and onto mixed media art and am now exploring monoprinting methods with acrylics on fabrics and paper. I have also attended a five day workshop with collage artist Joan Schultz from San Francisco. She incorporated some great techniques into her class such as collage, monoprinting and photo transfer techniques and I was hooked! I also like to incorporate free motion machine stitching and embroidery stitching into works where appropriate.
