Sarah grew up in Dorset, the elder daughter of a dairy farmer, and has been continually involved with animals throughout her life. Over many years Sarah was also been a very keen falconer having manned and flown both Harris Hawks and Lanner Falcons. After school she spent several years as a veterinary nurse. This, combined with her hobbies, has given her an extensive knowledge of animal anatomy, which is clearly demonstrated in her dynamic bronzes today.
In 1998, she answered an advertisement for an assistant sculptor to help create wax models of birds of prey and bring them to the pre-casting stage. Driven by the encouragement of the sculptor, who immediately recognised her natural talent, Sarah has been working on her own pieces since 1999.
Sarah has created equine, canine and various other animal studies in bronze, and occasionally silver, both as unique commissions and limited editions.
In 2007 Sarah was accepted as a Fellow of the Royal Society for the encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce (RSA) and she is also an Associate Member of The Society of Equestrian Artists.
She has become a familiar face on the eventing and point to point circuits, as an exhibitor, as an eventing competitor’s mother, with her younger daughter, Bea, competing regularly. Sarah also assists Bea with training point to pointers during the season.
Sarah has completed commissions of several top eventers including Miners Frolic, Macchiato, Ceylor Lan and Lord Killinghurst.
Sarah works in a purpose built studio at her Wiltshire home, surrounded by her pack of dogs.
