Sarah Gordon is a London-based artist and illustrator. She graduated from Camberwell College of Art in 2010 with a first class degree, specialising in printmaking and drawing.
Her work is broadly centred around themes of narrative, mortality and the absurd or beautiful that can be found within the everyday. She draws much of her inspiration from the often nonsensical-seeming nature of our world. She uses media across the traditional and digital spectrum, finding a good mix of techniques gives her the best visual vocabulary.
Currently, she is one of 15 artists involved in the Art Neuro science and art exchange being run by University College London. More information about the project can be found here.
Smaller works, such as books or selected prints can be bought through her webshop. For unlisted items, commissions or just to say ‘hello’ please contact Sarah directly (see the contact page for details).
