Sarah James is an artist based in Brighton. She creates artwork through drawing in mixed media, exploring birds and wildlife and architecture. In our conversation we talk about Sarah gave herself ‘the job’ of artist as a child, the beauty she finds in the ugly, dishevelled and overlooked, the importance of seeking inspiration in the work of others, the meditative and calming experience she finds in drawing and the positive effect this has on her mental health, sharing artwork online and how she gets herself unstuck.
