I May Dress Fancy, But Don’t Call Me Bird is my new, limited edition giclee print.
March is International Women’s History month, and I wanted to create a piece that embodies everything about my work, my love of fashion, women and nature.
The title, don’t call me Bird is call out to all misogynistic references. It’s time for us all to start using the right language. My pieces always have subtle references to the “muse” portraying strong women and characters from fiction and film.
Sarah combines her hand drawn sketches with digital illustration, painting, and original photography, layering as she goes. Sarah then uses digital processes, a kind of reverse taxidermy. Every tiny element is hand drawn and gradually built-up to create a rich and complex final image. These are then digitally formed into a final image, for a limited run (not a reproduction).
From a small edition of 50, the print is signed and numbered. Unique hand-finished version with gold leaf.
