About the artist
Sarah May has an interdisciplinary visual art practice. For 12 years she ran a studio focusing on set design for a wide variety of editorial and commercial fashion shoots. Alongside this she cultivated a personal creative practice focusing on the intimate relationship of material to the body and how one encounters this physically. She is part of FLINT; a collective of three female artists making audio-visual assemblages that involve sonic cut-ups, sculpture and collage.
She has self-published 2 books, both launched with site-specific exhibitions.
She lectures at the London College of Fashion, University of the Arts, London on BA Fashion Styling and Production. She leads a Fashion Futures course at BSIX College in Hackney, London and she leads fashion and textile workshops with a refugee charity in London.
She is growing a dye garden at her allotment and hopes to be able to create her own natural dyes in the future.
