Sara was not a conventional child. Most of her growing up was staying at home. This was not through choice of her own but her father was over protective. Never having a holiday with her parents her escapism was in art. Source materials came from magazine advert models, actors and pop stars. Inspired and compelled by beautiful photography and beautiful faces everything was drawn completely from eye no ruler for lines, no stencil or other tools where used and photographs.
As a teenager, the only place Sara would visit was the art store in Lime Street, Bedford.
Sara's commissions started at a young age for family and friends. Her school homework diary would have many drawings which her form tutor wanted to keep, but didn't.
Sara often describes her schooling years to be exciting but estranged and difficult. Eventually, Sara developed what some would call unhealthy ambition nothing else really mattered outside art and music. Self taught in piano (although she had attended Harpur Music School for a season or two), her school lunch time was hiding in the music room or in art rooms, this was not usually allowed however the teachers realised her dedication and encouraged her to practice. Sara would spend 6 hours a day playing piano. Deeply inspired by Jazz, soul, blues, fusion and some pop, innate ability to play almost every instrument by ear, Sara had enough to occupy her and she was very happy and also filled a void.
It is true that Sara's form tutor sat for hours watching Sara paint in her final art exam and cancelled a lesson just so to sit with her to watch. She remembers her teacher pulling her away from friends he felt were never good for her, he'd visited her home and would give her detention just so she could draw for him.
Keen on photography her first camera was a Minolta SLR 35mm film which she received as a gift for her 18th Birthday. Sara took photos of her artwork, murals and drawings. Although she has no degree in art, Sara does have a story to tell, her first manuscript/novel was written at 18 years old, Her first plane flight took her to Australia at the age of 22, and returned more times after that to live, and she's travelled many countries around the world ever since.
Sara drew hundreds of studies of 1990's popular TV Australian actor Les Hill, she'd send full size paintings, poems, letters with photographs and even a painted birthday card. He never received any of it.
Never had she thought that in 1999, she would receive a letter directly from Les Hill. Sara replied and drew three portraits and sent them to Australia. Working full time, and studying two subjects in the evening, Sara still produced art and often gave her commissions away for free as it pleasured Sara to draw.
Sara met Les Hill in 2000, a photo was taken together in Sydney, Australia. Her teenage dream to meet Les was completed. Les Hill gifted all his drawings to his parents.
Sara doesn’t make secret of her spiritual abilities to intuitively connect with many incredible separate stories to tell. Sara came from a religious home, and went to religious schools and always had an interest for the supernatural. Over the years Sara began to seek understanding regarding her prophetic visions. Although Sara was accepted at universities her family could never afford the cost and Sara accepted to deal with that and never gave up painting. Jobs paid scarce, but paid for materials. On the basis alone, it describes her passion and great compassion for art and will always produce it.
