About Me

After growing up in Melbourne, and graduating with a degree in Fine Arts (Honours) from Melbourne University, Sarah Hope has since spent most of her adult life married to a farmer in country Victoria. A former features journalist with the Geelong Advertiser, and small gallery owner she's also mother to six ranging in age from 23 down to 12.

Sarah and her family returned to Victoria in September 2016 after nearly two years living in Queensland. 'It's the only time I've ever lived away from Victoria and I became extremely homesick. But while living in the sunshine state, I discovered pottery. I've called it creative cross-training. I honed my new craft in an outdoor studio with an experienced and acclaimed Noosa hinterland potter, with sweat dripping down my back, being bitten my midges!' 

As an artist, Sarah has specialised in large-scale impressionistic landscapes, seascapes and abstract paintings. She has a passion for light, colour and texture and says, 'I love working on big canvases, using a combination of brush washes and layers of impasto applied with palette knives. I want my my paintings to inspire emotion and memory - almost a feeling of deja vu, a universal connection with the Australian landscape - for the viewer to feel,  I feel like I know that place.'

It was love at first play with clay, however, and Sarah is loving the demands of a new discipline. She's focussed on producing functional pieces, with an emphasis on exploring painted decoration and water colour style glazes. 'I'm loving introducing colour and pattern to my painted underglazes - but I do love that the pieces are hand-formed and not perfect.'

The result of studying pottery has been a strong desire to combine her painted works and ceramics in a thriving creative business. The Arts Trail gives Sarah the opportunity to launch her works together for the first time.

The medium I like to explore is silkscreen. I enjoy the tactile texture of silkscreen  and unpredictable  marks which are created during the printmaking process. The textured and often layered silkscreened monoprints on fabriano or canvas printed in  various colours are created in a manner that allows for transparency and layering.
