Sarah has shown her work in group exhibitions nationally and internationally. Sarah graduated from Camberwell College of Arts, Central Saint Martins and Universität Hamburg.

“My current practice explores ideas of national identity, collective memory, and how land and borders become central sites for tension. I use landscape as subject matter and fragments of text to suggest ideas of place and provoke a sense of foreboding and unease. I have been making a body of work entitled Listen to Britain, which is borrowed from the British short film by Humphrey Jennings and Stewart McAllister. In the years since its release in 1942 the film has certainly shaped the nation’s collective consciousness.”
