Sarah Morgan

Sarah Morgan originally trained in theatre set design and production and worked as freelancer for many years as a painter, prop maker.

 

Having always been a painter she recently completed a couple of small printmaking courses and has since fallen in love with the process. Sarah loves exploring the possibilities that printmaking has to offer and feels this is only the beginning of a new passion.

 

Sarah works mainly with collagraph prints, enjoying the texture and atmosphere she can create with them, her prints are often inspired by memories, love and other emotions along with thoughts of adventures and daydreams.

 

Each collagraph plate is made up of mountboard, tape, glue and sometimes carborundum. She then scratches and cuts away pieces of the mountboard until she has the image she wants. Sarah mixes the ink for each printing session and then inks up each plate by hand. The plate is then put onto a printing press and pulled through with dampened paper on top. This whole inking up process has to be repeated for each print thereafter which is why the prints can vary a little in colour making each print unique and original which Sarah feels is all part of their charm.
