ABOUT  SARAH

Born in 1984, Sarah Park completed a Bachelor of Fine Arts
which was followed by a Masters in Art and a Masters in
Fine Art by Research at UNSW COFA. During this time, she
was won the Jenny Birt Award for Painting and Drawing, and the UNSW Engineering Photography Prize.


Sarah was also selected as a finalist for many notable prizes
including the Adelaide Perry Prize, the Fisher’s Ghost Award, and the Broken Hill Outback Art Prize to name a few. In 2012 Park was selected to feature on the ‘Discovery’ page of Artist Profile magazine, Issue 21.


After actively participating in numbers solo and group
exhibitions, Sarah moved to UK in 2015-2017 to discover
new inspiration for her art while following her dream of
long term travel.


Sarah currently lives and works in Sydney and the Central Coast.
