Mosaics is an art form that she has been working with since she went to her first mosaics workshop at Rufford Abbey, in Nottinghamshire over 10 years ago. Sarah has been running her own mosaics workshops and been involved in community projects since November 2017 and had her first commission to create a company logo in December 2018.Her work is heavily influenced by Gaudi, and neo-classicism, as well as the natural world, and she particularly likes to use mirrors to reflect the light, creating more depth and movement. Sarah is available to take commissions and is happy to get involved in more community projects; and values the positive impact the creative arts can have on reducing social isolation, and an increasing confidence and general well-being. Overall, Sarah is a fun maker and creative, with a relaxed approach.
