Description

‘I have always been fascinated by the outdoors and all the creatures and plants within it.  As a small child I was the one collecting tadpoles, turning over rocks to discover the treasures underneath, finding and picking up “pretties” and adopting all manner of waifs and strays much to the frustration of my parents.’

Over the past few years, the concept of using ‘rescued’ and recycled pallet wood, destined for landfill or the burn pile, to design and create pieces with an environmental message was born.

Sarah has designed a range of work demonstrating how it is possible to create items of functional and beautiful artwork, furniture and garden pieces by utilising and beautifying ‘waste’ raw materials that are readily available.  From native bee hotels, bird houses to quirky homewares, furniture, and wall art she transforms the ugly into something that is a truly delightful, and very colourful addition, to any home or garden.

Throughout her work there is a very strong underlying environmental message.  Recycle, upcycle and re use are at the forefront of her thoughts when designing new pieces.

A passion for wild things is also a driving force behind Sarah’s work. Akin to a bower bird or magpie she connects to nature and her environment by collecting ‘goodies’ and photographing macro worlds. She reconfigures these natural visions into digital formats to be etched, burnt or cut using laser technology to create exquisite jewellery, wearable objects, and rhythmic designs. 

When not working with pallet wood Sarah prides herself in using sustainably sourced local timbers to maintain a sense of place and connection to the southwest and particularly the Margaret River region.

Sarah shares a captivating work space with partner, and fellow artist, Ian Thwaites at their magnificent and riotously busy home.  Together they are fuelled with a passion for all things wood and have become the masters of upcyling and recycling and incorporating these elements into their work.

Sarah shares a studio with fellow artists Ian Thwaites and Louise Mann.
