Arts Practice -

Sarah Hewer is an artist working across photography, drawing, printmaking and mixed media. A mapping of inner landscapes and paradox, Sarah's practice is grounded in themes of memory, perception, vulnerability and imperfection. 

Often combining multiple techniques, an intuitive and exploratory nature runs through her work. Be it her large-scale botanical photographs of decaying and broken debris found in nature; or the raw, often flame-fuelled mark-making of her abstract prints and drawings. Drawn to the use of chiaroscuro, her work explores boundaries between light and dark, visual and emotional.  

An emerging artist, Sarah's practice draws on over twenty-five years as a creative; first in moving images, and later commercial photography.


Sarah was a finalist in the 2023 Fremantle Print Award. She was recently selected for the upcoming  South West Art Now (SWAN): A New Constellation.

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