"Working with Sarah has strengthened my work and invited curiosity and deeper thinking about the smallest of details. She has introduced me to philosophical structures that I didn't know existed and never thought I'd be able to access. Her kindness, rigour and ability to find connections between so many different ways of thinking and being is amazing to experience. I also find that those drawn to work with her are like minded and my community of artists has grown from working in groups and one on one with Sarah."
