Hello, I’m Sarah – an artist, designer and puppet-maker.
Being creative in many different ways is what I do and always have done.
I studied fine art at Saint Martins, Exeter University and the National college of Art and Design in Dublin.
My Grandma taught me to draw and paint, my mum taught me to sew and my dad gave me an eye for antiques and curiosities.
Working at Jim Henson’s Creature Shop in Camden, I learnt some amazing skills from some amazing people and had the privilege to be involved on some fantastic TV and film work including Harry Potter.
I make art installations, my latest work focusing on the climate crisis and how we respond to these challenging times.
Last year (2018) I collaborated with Orla Kiely and was commissioned to make a series of art dolls wearing miniaturised versions of her designs. The dolls were exhibited as part of her retrospective show, “A Life in Pattern.”
I’ve worked as Art Director for Komedia Entertainment on a short film for Count Arthur Strong’s touring theatre show.
I have done design work and character development for the BBC.
I’ve made over 200 art dolls, and been featured in Selvedge magazine. You can see the article here.
