Sarah read History of Art at the University of Cambridge then completed an MA in Medieval Studies at York University before turning to Printmaking. Sarah loves the individuality that medieval artists gave their animal subjects; medieval bestiaries, manuscript marginalia and decorative art inspire much of her work. She also takes inspiration from British wildlife and from Folk Art. Working in a minimalist, illustrative style, Sarah loves the bold simplicity of line to which linocutting lends itself so beautifully. Sarah lives in the Eden Valley, Cumbria, with her Labrador, Quiver.
