About me
Sara has been practising art for over 15 years with a wealth of experience in the field. Achieving a BA and MA in Fine Art and Illustration Sara uses these subjects to express her artistic skill set. Also exploring 3D Design, wood work, mould making and ceramics, Sara delivers these subjects as creative workshops through her teaching role in further education. Sara has recently started to combine her urban culture themes through the same mediums. Pressing skateboards, skateboard wheel casting and skate shoe sculpture projects have helped Sara explore the concept of merging her passion for skateboarding with her art and her continued exploration of the urban culture and sub cultures such as graffiti, fashion, skating, youth culture, female identity, working class artists and music etc. Sharing her passion and engaging the youth is very important to Sara, believing that it’s our responsibility to help future generations excel through creative education and exploration. “It’s time to change the way we learn! It should be fun, supportive, inspiring, personal and exciting. I’m ready to help make this happen” Sara is also a keen campaigner/fundraiser for mental health charities and often discusses mental well being in her creative practise. A brand of OK emoji's on Sara's garments communicate the idea 'It's OK to not be OK'. "Tell you friends you love them, give them a hug. The world is shit enough and we need to make it better"
