Sarah was born in New Zealand in 1949. She travelled extensively throughout Europe, North Africa, USA and Australia before settling in Sydney. In 1969 she first entered the art world as an artist’s model, both in Europe and Australia.
Sarah crossed over to the other side of the easel in 1977 to become an art student at Hornsby TAFE, Alexander Mackie School of Art (now C.O.F.A) and National Art School in Sydney, and Claremont School of Art in Perth. Since 1983 she has engaged in various professional art activities including winning a vast number of art prizes and commendations throughout Australia. Sarah has had numerous exhibitions in Perth and Sydney, half of them being major solo exhibitions (including Holdsworth Galleries in Sydney). She has been teaching art since 1987 mainly at the Workshop Arts Centre in Willoughby.
Sarah has a vast experience in personal growth i.e. psychodrama, Gestalt, Transactional Analysis, Primal, Bio-energetics, voice dialogue, spiritual/meditation disciplines, Playback Theatre, clown, dance and theatre workshops here in Sydney and in Perth. Also, Sarah has participated in creative skills and psychic awareness workshops. She likes to combine eastern spiritual thought with western psychology – an interesting flavour in the creative process. Sarah brings all this experience to her classes, making her a good communicator.
