Building up her pieces in clay over a steel armature, Sara’s work is cast into bronze, and she patinates each piece uniquely in rich colours to suit their characters.
Her witty and glamorous ladies are at home in most settings. They are dressed to kill – or at the very least to create an impression. Are they waiting for a lover, or perhaps a secret meeting? These ladies exude confidence, elegance, and style: they take no prisoners and aren’t to be messed with. Their colouring and clothes, shoes, and hats are key to their characters.
Sara’s pieces are widely exhibited in galleries in this country and abroad and she has undertaken numerous commissions for both private and corporate clients, ranging from the Mayflower’s Edward Winslow stepping ashore on to Plymouth Rock, The Airline of the Year Award, Diving with Dolphins for the Nordic Swimming Federation and many others.
