Hello, and welcome to my website. I’m Sarah-Jane Crowson, a collage artist and visual poet based in the UK. I’ve had my artwork and visual poetry featured in Rattle’s Ekphrastic Challenge, Waxwing Literary Journal, Thrush Poetry Journal, Iron Horse Literary Review, and Sugar House Review, amongst others.
I am also an educator at Hereford College of Arts, and a postgraduate researcher at Birmingham City University, investigating ideas of the ‘critical radical rural’.
My poetry and visual poetry can be seen in various journals, including Waxwing Literary Journal (cover art Summer 2021), Petrichor, Sugar House Review, Thrush Poetry Journal and Iron Horse Literary Review.
Rare Swan press published my artist booklet (Stories from the eyes of an owl, Sarah-Jane Crowson) in December 2021.
Sarah-Jane Crowson: Visual Poetry:
Sarah-Jane’s visual poetry is inspired by fairytales, nature, psychogeography and surrealism. As a visual poet, she uses images and text explore the space between real and imagined; creating alternative narratives as small acts of resistance. Working with a mixture of analogue and digital techniques, she works with found ephemera, found text and out of copyright images, juxtaposing them to transform their original meanings.
