I’ve spoken at a lot of events, colleges, schools and universities, and love meeting new audiences, passing on my experience and answering questions - even the hard ones I wasn’t expecting - online and in person.

               Sarah, your talk was an inspiration to our young illustrators and artists and as a result some are keen to follow their dreams and pursue a career in art.  Thank you so much!  Hastings High School
