Collection: Sarah Forbes
Sarah initially picked up a camera as a means of avoiding people and conversation. A childhood in which she was bullied because of her Dyslexia and Irlen Syndrome resulted in low self-esteem and expectations. The safe space behind the camera afforded Sarah the opportunity to wonder at the changing beauty of the natural world. She became acutely aware of how fleeting each moment is and how, within nature, change is a wonderful and intriguing constant. In her own life, change is a source of anxiety and to be avoided, but in her art it poses opportunities and hope.
Sarah has built a portfolio of which she is immensely proud. Her compositions cut out the noise of everyday life and focus on the intricacies of texture and colour. Through her art, Sarah finds an inner calm, an acceptance and an optimism which we all need sometimes.
