​Sarah Sculley is a Sunshine Coast-based urban artist who creates colourful, feminine, layered work. Inspired by the female form, typography and colour, Sarah mixes these elements to create her work on canvas, paper, surfboards and skate decks. She is inspired by personal events, emotional pitfalls and the constant need to find the positive in every situation. She studied a Bachelor of Design Studies majoring in Graphic Design and Visual Culture at the Queensland College of Art and received a scholarship from Griffith University to study abroad at the Edinburgh College of Art, Scotland.

 

Sarah has been exhibiting her work since 2005. Her first solo art show was in Shanghai, China. Sarah specialises in extra large canvas works, murals (commercial, retail and private) and blending her unique style into branding design.

Sarah is the Global Artistic Associate at Micro Galleries. To hear about what project we are working on next, get in touch.

Sarah's approach to her work, while very personalised and intimate with each commission, is highly professional and delivered always as requested on time. I admire Sarah's ability to maintain such a creative level of design while retaining such a high level of professionalism and planning.
