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.

Art Rabble Christmas Cards

We all want to do our bit to help others at Christmas and buying charity Christmas cards is a great way to do this. However, not all "charity" cards are as generous as others. Many popular supermarket cards contribute only a fraction of their proceeds to charity. At Art Rabble, we try to give as much as we possibly can back to our artists; currently this is 50p out of every £3. We do this because we want disabled artists to be paid generously for their skills and effort.

We would like to pay our artists a larger amount but while major retailers benefit from economies of scale, for us small print runs are costly and delivery (as a percentage of sale value) is high. However, with the continued support of our lovely customers, we hope we can increase volume over time, therefore lowering our costs.

Thank you for taking the time to look at our Christmas cards - we hope you love them. We are so proud of the work our artists do, if you can help us spread the word, all the better! Happy Christmas to all.
