Sarah is a Canadian artist and researcher interested in bricolage: disassembling, repurposing, and modifying existing objects or ideas to generate new understanding.

Sarah received a PhD in Fine Art from the Slade School of Fine Art (2018), where she built spacesuits for animals, borrowed NASA moon rocks, and created strategies to define what it means to call a person or thing ‘cool’. Sarah also created an Apollo A5-L pressure suit from materials sourced from the streets of London and produced a performative mission series, including Voyageur (with Nikolas Ventourakis) for, Hors Pistes: La lune: Zone Imaginaire à Défendre, in the Centre Pompidou, Paris, France (2019). She received the Kenneth Armitage Sculpture Prize and the Westbury Arts Centre Graduate Residency, Milton Keynes, in 2016.

Currently, Sarah is the Specialist Casting Technician for Central Saint Martins and the first Artist In Residence at the Centre for Outer Space Studies, UCL.
