Artist 92: Sarah Dennis

Fabulous artist now for your viewing pleasure. Sarah Dennis has a great and instantly eye-catching style. Her work is bold and has that lyrical quality, which brings the eye in and flows the gaze around the image revealing the complex layering in her work, her skilful choice of collage materials adds depth and her use of colour is interesting with a familiar palette that unites her work and gives her that instant branding that you need to stand out. Her work is both sweet and magical, blending fantasy and storytelling with both traditional and imagined images that give her work the look of a modern fairytale. Integrating both collage and cut out into a modern style, she is a master of composition allowing her to create efficiently without distracting from her subjects. A great artist, please read on for a little about her.
