Sarah has resided in the picturesque Adelaide Hills for nearly 20 years, and thrives in the environment which constantly inspires her to see the beauty and meaning in life's simplest of pleasures. Throughout her art practice she strives to capture a warmth and playfulness to her work, ultimately evoking a sense of the unadulterated wonder we experienced as children.
Formally trained at Adelaide Central School of Art, Sarah enjoys working with oil paints, charcoal, graphite and found objects. She adores working with gouache and colour pencil, often creating a magical whimsy to her compositions. This alluring mixed media combination beautifully blends traditional fine art and illustration techniques.
Sarah was winner of the Australian Society of Authors Picture Book Illustration Mentorship Program in 2009, where she worked under the guidance of esteemed illustrator Craig Smith.
