The judges said of Achilles
," this paper cut has such a presence ... amazing given it is created with just bits of paper ... so much skill was involved and a lot of heart to make it shine like this."
Working from her own photographs, Sarah hand-cuts layers of paper to create unique artworks, mounted and framed under glass. The majority of works in her exhibition will be available to buy.
In Westgate Galleria we showcase a diverse selection of contemporary and traditional art and crafts alongside our guest exhibitions. This work is handmade by a large
