Sarah has been fascinated with drawing and painting from early childhood. At just three years of age, she presented her father with an accurate sketch of a pram. From that moment on, the die was cast. These days she is rarely to be found without a paint brush in her hand.
Sarah’s work draws inspiration from her rural surroundings, her deeply felt connection to the land and the folklore inherent in British culture. She is inspired by the wildlife and landscape which she sees every day. To create each piece, Sarah uses a mixed-media technique which gives the paintings depth and allows the colours and images to truly sing.
Since 2015, Sarah has been working with prog rock band Big Big Train. She has produced a number of EP and album covers for the band, as well as logos, motifs and designs which have been used on band merchandise and within live on-stage projections.
Sarah’s work has twice been nominated for Album Cover of The Year at the annual Progressive Music Awards. In 2018, she was delighted to clinch the award for her work on Big Big Train’s album The Second Brightest Star. Her partnership with the band and the wider “BBT family” continues to grow.
Sarah's work has appeared on ITV and Channel 4 television. Her work has been featured in publications from Mirror Group Newspapers and Future Publishing. Her paintings are sold in galleries throughout the United Kingdom and can be found in collections around the world.
Sarah lives in a little cottage in Nottinghamshire, deep within DH Lawrence country - as the author said "the country of my heart". She shares her life with singer-songwriter and producer David Longdon. And a very old, crotchety cat called Maurice.
