Sarah is an independent textile and paper-based printmaker. She works with a variety of media, including oil paint, collage and gouache.
Sarah has carried out a variety of practice-based research projects, including AHRC-funded doctoral research (2012 – 2015) into the relationship between creative making and mental health.
A QEST Scholarship will see Sarah complete a four-week structured programme of study at the Scuola Internazionale di Grafica Venezia, an established print studio in Venice, specialising in cutting-edge and sustainable printmaking.
Sarah will also take part in various group workshops and one-to-one training to learn a range of different printmaking skills (with a focus on woodcut). This training will allow her to produce larger and more technically ambitious work, and to introduce more sustainable ways of working into her practice.
