Sarah McCartney Artist

Cornish artist living and working in Falmouth


I collect and make stories about my encounters with non-human life in sea, land and air. I celebrate, mourn, and bring attention to those I meet. I am witness to the moment I am in and believe that even though my efforts seem small, I bring something new to the world by reciprocating the gifts I have been given. 

This then is the work, a continuous journey. Paper, specimen and word. Sometimes it is enough to leave these fragments in sketchbooks and drawers. A drawing in a sketchbook may be full of energy and life, the little resin in my hand may be a beautiful object. But the whole story can be hard to see. 
My task is to curate the fragments and make song with all the seeing. Everything is connected.
