SARAH STRICKLAND / MELBOURNE

Sarah’s work is born from gentle observation and a desire to create the spaces she would like to inhabit. A watchful type with a strong interest in the reality around her and trying to find a way to show the beauty in those quiet spaces.

Sarah works mainly with gouache to achieve the flat vibrant colour and then adds detailed patterning. She often wonders when to stop.

Inspired by pop art and illustration from the mid century which can be seen in the use of flat, bold colour, Sarah likes to add a human touch via unintentionally wobbly lines and just a little bit of imperfection.
