Discover how some artists felt about working with us


On an ongoing collaboration involving studio visits and critical discussion, artist Steven Heaton says:

"As an artist, sometimes you might get so absorbed in your own world, and forget to stand back: things get lost, abandoned, ignored, forgotten...It takes an external influence, fresh eyes, intelligence, knowledge, passion, interest, enthusiasm, to point one back to what they may have overlooked...Sara is incredible at this, and I have found myself liberated by her company, and the actual reason of being an artist realised once more."


On the benefits of meeting with Sara in preparation for one of our Curated Conversations, artist James Naughton says:

"Much of what you said has never been communicated to me so clearly by anyone else and confirmed views I'd nurtured but felt unable to express over a long period. I'd imagine that in the earlier stages of my career such conversations would have been extremely valuable and know it will help me moving forward. I can feel aspects of the way I view my work changing at a fundamental level."
