Hi, I'm Sarah...

Art is a great way of connecting. Connecting with life, with people, with thoughts, feelings and emotions. I find the creative process to be a healing one. It helps me to step back from the busy everyday, take time to reflect and ground myself. 

 

Wellbeing can seem an unattainable dream in the crap of life, when actually, it is within reach. I’ve learnt that in order to be whole enough to support those I love, I have to look after myself. Creating is how I do that.

 

Creating has become an important life skill for me. I’ve discovered that it’s a tool that can help others too. So that’s why I do what I do. I create, and I help others to create, to be happy, whole and connected. 

 

My textile art uses bold colourful shapes with machine stitch, hand embroidery and paper. I love to explore the possibilities of new techniques and influences. I take inspiration from the stuff of life and connect these influences with each stitch. 

 

I love people. It’s my privilege to work as an activities coordinator at a nursing home. Having the opportunity to get to know our residents and helping them to rediscover their purpose, explore their creativity and memories is really fulfilling.

 

The joy of teaching other people to create is in giving them the confidence to go on their own creative journey. If you’d like to join me on that journey, please get in touch.
