Photography has held Sara’s interest since she was six years old working in the field and in the darkroom with her grandma. Her work leans towards the ‘significant form’ idea from the 1920s Bloomsbury Group’s Clive Bell – that a good work of art is so defined by its ability to provoke ‘aesthetic emotion’ in the viewer and has little, if anything, to do with subject identification nor representation. She likes to take things out of context to lead the viewer towards the expressivity of details and aesthetic lines. She investigates the concept of emotion conveyed by subtle differences in weight, texture, and strength of the elemental line – examining emotion and simplicity within textures, shadows, spaces, and details. She lives with her husband and daughter, living in and loving Cambridge, England.

I love my morning coffee, ashtanga yoga, my family, and cozy pajamas. I am an avid traveler and admirer of formalism and abstract expressionism. I love fresh food and wish I made more time to read. My favourite movie quote is from The Contender: “Principles don’t mean very much if you don’t stick by them when it’s inconvenient.”
