Sarah is a self-taught artist coming from a background of working in TV for 20yrs. After having children, she switched career to focus-in on the possibilities of the single frame with photography, and also the intricacies of music and sound.
Sarah has worked in darkrooms in Greenwich, New Cross and Woolwich, and trained under Master Printer Tim Rudman in the specialist technique of Lith Printing. She continues to experiment with materials, using mixed-media (collage, paint, sound), cyanotype (sun-printing), and liquid emulsion (photos on 3D surfaces) . Her Fine Art photography is exhibited and sold in various galleries from Whitechapel to Spain.
Sarah harnesses the power of natural light on location, and also with her cyanotype sun-printing. Sometimes she abandons the camera altogether and makes cameraless images by painting with light. She experiments with plant alchemy to investigate the secrets of life. She explores all realms of reality: quantum physics, myths, fake news, dreams, futurism.
Sarah is a driven environmentalist. She sits on a panel for reducing Carbon in Greenwich. She aims for a sustainable business. She has been a vegetarian for 40yrs, boycotts plastic packaging, and limits flights and car journeys. In 2021 she is building a small darkroom from recycled materials. Most of her equipment including vintage cameras is from the used market. Sarah’s work is also concerned with Loss. The loss of green spaces in london, and the loss of species. She researches science and history, and speculates on a future in which mankind may merge with AI.
