I have long worked in a semi-abstract way with the shapes and edges of things. Stripes and hand lettering have appeared in my work early on along with series focused on furniture and landscape motifs. Most of this work was made under my birth name, Sarah K Davenport.
My paintings have always been bold and handmade. Layered with colour, scratched and scraped, glazed and rubbed back then drawn and layered over again, they go through many stages before they are finished. Occasionally I work with found objects that bear the traces of memory or previous lives.
