After spending her early years travelling extensively, living in many parts of the United Kingdom in addition to time spent in Malta, her family settled in Cornwall where she went on to study at Falmouth College of Art. Early influences included the St Ives Painters and artists Patrick Heron and John Piper. Interested in surface pattern and design Sarah studied at the Birmingham Institute of Art and Design, where she was awarded a First Class honours degree and a Distinction at Masters level.
