About Sarah-Joy

I am kind of a beachcomber. I collect pieces, shards, fragments of everything that even slightly appeals to me. Forgotten myths, remote islands, deep sea creatures, archaeological artefacts or dinosaurs. My head is a mess, as is my house and my studio. But all these fragments somehow find their way into my work, and eventually, their place in a larger whole.

I combine my fragments to perceive new tales from a dreamstate world. These stories are not tangible, nor imaginative - they quiver somewhere in between, in a rather fluid state.          

My goal is never to present you with a firm, closed-off world of thoughts, but rather with a translucent idea of how these things appear logically to me.
In case you’ll find it relevant: I also really like videogames, jazz music and dogs.
