Sarah-Jane’s art and poetry is inspired by fairytales, nature and her personal emotional landscape. It is informed by ideas of accidental transgression, surrealism and romanticism. Her collages transform images and artefacts from historical popular culture into surreal, theatrical dreamscapes. She works with a mixture of analogue and digital collage techniques and hopes to create small enigmatic treasures that people might find beautiful.
She is an educator at Hereford College of Arts, and a postgraduate researcher at Birmingham City University, investigating ideas of the ‘critical radical rural’.
Sarah-Jane’s images can be seen in various UK and US journals, including The Adroit Journal, Rattle, Waxwing Literary Journal, Petrichor, Sugar House Review and Iron Horse Literary Review. She was shortlisted for the Haiku Foundation ‘Touchstone’ award in 2020 and for the Canterbury Festival Poet of the Year Award in 2015.
