SARAH JAMES

Biography





Originally trained as a painter, Sarah worked for many years

in the Fine Art Printmaking Department at Winchester School of Art

and in a leading print editioning workshop. Also there were

Residencies and Fellowships in the UK and overseas.

 

She subsequently set up her own print studio to work

on projects with professional painters and sculptors;

her work has consequently developed into all the print areas

as well as photography and digital.

 

'I am concerned with ideas of mortality, journeys both personal

and universal, the threads of memory which connect us,

the enigmatic merging of spirit and place'

 

More recently a long held preoccupation with the grid and

rectangle as a spiritual language has been influenced by

the intricate geometry of early Welsh quilts, as well as the 

astonishing sophistication of 14th century Moorish tiles

in the Alhambra Palace in Granada.
