Sarah Turpin

I am a UK based mixed media artist and printmaker with a passion for words and stories. My inspirations are found in nature, mythology, folk and fairy tale, as well as real-life journeys and lives.  Told in bold designs using found textures and papers, paper-cut and printmaking techniques, which enable me to create atmosphere invoking a range of emotions from dark to light.

Falling in love with illustration, at primary school my friend and I would sneak into the classroom during the lunch hour to copy illustrations from the Golden Age. I particularly loved Rackham, Nielsen and Dulac along with Jan Pienkowski’s silhouettes over marbled backgrounds in ‘Tales from Beneath the Sea’, all of which influence my artwork today.
