About Sarah Robley

 
 
  • Biography

    I was born and raised on a farm in the Eden Valley, where I now work as a printmaker with my lovely Labrador, Quiver. After studying History of Art at the University of Cambridge, and completing an MA in Medieval Studies at York University, I decided I wanted to create beautiful things, not just look at them! I love the individuality that medieval artists gave their animal subjects; medieval ‘marginalia’ and decorative art inspires much of my work. I also take inspiration from the wildlife of the Lake District and from Folk Art. Working in a minimalist, illustrative style, I love the bold simplicity of line to which linocutting lends itself so beautifully. I also enjoy the expressive qualities of rough-cut backgrounds and the sense of movement they evoke. I hope you enjoy my work!
