Sarah Stewart, Designer & Printmaker

"I'm a printmaker based in Wigtown and specialise in relief and silkscreen printing processes.

I am inspired by the past, thrown away and preloved - objects which were once treasured or had purpose but since been discarded and no longer needed. I hope to find the beauty in these objects and the pasts we've left behind and produce contemporary prints to engage with the modern viewer.

As I become increasingly concerned about the impact of our throw away culture, I hope that through my work others will see the beauty in the objects around them and have a desire to preserve our heritage and landscape.

I apply my designs to a variety of textile and bookforms."

Testimonials

The beautiful notebooks and cards that I have purchased from Sarah have been absolutely delightful. The quality is superb and the service has been quick and efficient. I would happily order from her again.

K. Potter, Dorset

We bought a series of four limited edition prints from Sarah for our retro kitchen, they arrived promptly and now take pride of place. Sarah's work is unique and timeless and very much enjoyed.

Environmental Ethics

Over the past few years my awareness of my carbon footprint as an artist has grown. This has led me to make changes to my printmaking practice.

My studio remains as chemical free as possible using primarily waterbased systems and soil association approved inks. All papers used in my studio are acid free and my notebooks are bound by hand using luxuriously smooth recycled papers. My textile based pieces use linens manufactured in Scotland and are printed and sewn in my home studio. 

Where possible I reuse packaging and ensure any bought packaging is compostable and/or fully recyclable.

These changes to my practice have been made sensitively to enhance the quality of my work and presentation.

10% of all sales are donated to charity. My chosen charities include Shelter, Women's Aid and Comfort International.
