Throughout Sarah’s work there is a very strong underlying environmental message. Recycle, upcycle and re use are at the forefront of her thoughts when creating new pieces.
Over the past few years, the idea of using ‘rescued’ and recycled pallet wood to design and create pieces with a distinct environmental message has been explored.
Sarah has designed a range of work demonstrating how it is possible to create items of functional and beautiful artwork, furniture and garden pieces by utilising and beautifying ‘unwanted’ raw materials that are readily available. From native bee hotels, bird houses to quirky homewares, furniture, and wall art she transforms the ‘discarded’ into something that is a truly delightful, and very colourful addition, to any home or garden.
When not working with pallet wood Sarah prides herself in using sustainably sourced local timbers to maintain a sense of place and connection to the southwest and particularly the Margaret River region. She creates beautiful and functional pieces including bowls, charcuterie boards, earrings, and necklace pendants.
Sarah shares a captivating work space with partner, and fellow artist, Ian Thwaites at their magnificent and riotously busy home. Together they are fuelled with a passion for all things wood and have become the masters of upcyling and recycling and incorporating these elements into their work.
