Sarah describes her inspirations…
I am interested in creating a place where I would want to be. I aim to portray an emotional response to landscape…and my journey to the studio and the weather is usually reflected in my days work.
I am currently using monotype and monoprint (a combination of permanent marks on my plate and instinctive colour added for one print only). My decisions which prints to keep and which to destroy are crucial to my work as an artist.
The marks and layers can appear random but sometimes it takes many attempts to achieve the effect I am after. Layering is important to me, I want to be able to return to the work again and again and still find something new.
