Sarah Barton

Hear My Voice

As an illustrator, Sarah’s ideas for her work are sparked by other people’s words, the sources of inspiration ranging from the opinion columns to song lyrics: words with a powerful stance, message or emotion. The work itself is dynamic but flexible as to its purpose, but the approach however remains consistent: limited colour, symbolism and, if appropriate, humour, are used to relay her visual interpretation. Often another element of Sarah’s work is where there may be two components of a whole image, a visual pun or puzzle, to make an audience think or have to take a closer look.
