Key Themes: poetry, symbolism, humour


Sarah uses her many life experiences to explore the human psyche. Sarahs love of words and the poignant pictures they evoke shine through in many of her pieces of work. Although many of the subjects are of a serious nature her profound sense of humour and her understanding of the absurdity of life are self evident.
This book will appeal to a wide audience, each picking out a particular poem that communicates to them as an individual. Sarahs use of words to paint mind pictures, such as two little shoes, where she uses that as a symbolism of loss, will catch the imagination that perhaps visual art some times can not.
