Arts Practice -

An intuitive sensibility runs through artist Sarah Hewer’s work. Be-it her large scale botanical photographs, or the raw and organic mark-making of her prints and drawings. Her practice is grounded in themes of memory, perception and vulnerability. A mapping of emotional landscapes. Nature, time and the elements are recurring influences.

Sarah's rigour and deep understanding of light and form were developed over twenty-five years. First in the world of moving images as an editor, and later as photographer. Sarah began exhibiting publicly in 2021, though her practice developed long before.


Sarah works across photography, printmaking, ink and digital drawing, often combining multiple techniques.

She lives on Wadandi and Pibelmen Boodja, the Margaret River Region.
