Sarah took her first steps towards becoming an artist by completing a foundation course in art and design at Brighton City College. She is influenced by storytelling, from a young age drawing inspiration from her grandfather's collection of old books and Japanese artwork. Sarah has always possessed a strong desire to create a world of her own, fuelled by her love of nature, animation and her own personal experience. In 2008, Sarah completed a degree in illustration at the University of The West of England, where she developed her drawing and applied her skills to children's books, editorials, designs and animations. Her work now combines traditional scherenschnitte (paper cutting) with collage. Sarah's pieces exemplify the beauty of nature in fairy tales and whimsical childhood dreams, telling classic poems and folk tales through the medium of paper. Each piece is individually hand-cut using a craft knife to reveal exquisite, delicate detail within the illustration. Sarah works as a full time artist and illustrator. Not limiting herself to any one type of project, she takes on a variety of work and welcomes individual requests for bespoke, hand-crafted artwork.
