Background:
Sarah graduated from Edinburgh College of Art in 2007 with a BA(Hons) Degree in Visual Communication, Illustration. Her previous background in Digital Design continues to inform her practice as a Designer and Printmaker. She has exhibited both nationally and internationally and her work is held in private collections across Europe.

Armed with a desire to promote the works of other creatives, Sarah opened Craigard Gallery in Wigtown in 2014 which she manages alongside her own creative practice. Sarah has also been a key player in establishing a year-round Open Studios project for the West of the region with the creation of a new initiative “Artists in Blue”. 

She is keen to address the needs of emerging and established artists and facilitate new opportunities for public engagement and collaborative projects both on a national and an international level.
