Sarah Hammond Studio
Sarah has always been deeply creative. She knew early on that artistic expression would be her life’s canvas, inspired by the natural world in particular. Her affinity with nature was sown back on her family farm in rural England, Nottinghamshire. At university she chose a different world to venture into, obtaining a BA Hons in Fashion Design from Nottingham Trent. Following on down this path, for 16 years she worked as a clothing designer. In her 20’s she was living in London and Amsterdam, soaking up the design culture of Europe over a period of 5 years. From there she was invited to continue her work in Vancouver. The call of the wild was never far away, however. The growing disparity between an industry that propagates consumption and disposability jarred more and more with her own ecocentric values. Over the last 7 years Sarah has been inexorably drawn back to her roots. Sarah is a student, a devotee, an ally to the natural world. Her fine line, highly detailed drawings seek to capture and showcase its stunning biodiversity, bringing the beauty of the outside into our homes, rewilding ourselves a little in the process, too.
