A cinematic sensibility runs through artist Sarah Hewer’s work. Be-it her ethereal botanical photographs or the raw and flame-fuelled mark-making of her abstract prints. Her practice is grounded in themes of memory, vulnerability, imperfection and emotional paradox; a mapping of inner worlds. She often takes reference from nature, time and the elements.

Sarah works across photography, printmaking, ink and digital drawing, and mixed media. Largely self-taught, her rigour and deep understanding of light, form and narrative was developed over twenty-five years. A one-way ticket to London post film-school, led to over a decade as a freelance documentary editor. Later, she transitioned to photography, shooting for the likes of National Geographic Traveller, Delicious Australia and The Guardian. Sarah began exhibiting publicly in 2021.

Sarah's home studio is not accessible to the public so she undertakes a residency for Open Studios each year; previously at Dormilona and for the first time this year at Art Geo, Old Courthouse Complex Busselton with six other artists.

Her work ‘The Space Between’ is currently on display in Fremantle Print Award Exhibition.
