Sarah Symes exhibited a passion for making art with
fabric at a young age. Eager to pursue a more academic
career, she studied Architecture at the prestigious
University College London, before training and working
as a Graphic Designer. Sarah relocated to California in
2004, where she now works as a full-time Textile Artist.
Sarah attributes her creative process to the many years
spent fusing her design sensibilities with the warmth
and texture of fabric.
Fascinated by the elemental beauty of California's west
coast, Sarah finds inspiration in the ever-changing
beach landscape. The interaction between sky, sea and
sand is a common theme across her work. Sarah aspires to
recreate her internal experiences of places and people
through her textile art.
