Sara J Beazley


Sara J Beazley is a London-based printmaker whose refined style has garnered international attention. Marrying old with new, she employs traditional printing techniques such as etching, drypoint, embossing and silkscreen printing to produce contemporary and original images.
Her works capture the delicacies and subtle beauty of line, pattern and palette. Juxtaposing architectural drawings or photographs with fine patterned fabrics and elements of the figure, Sara’s work is graceful and sensitive. The carefully composed layers of ink produce remarkably sophisticated images, and close inspection reveals ‘ghost like’ silhouettes. Adopting motifs from vintage postcards, calligraphy and postage stamps found in antique markets in Asia and Europe, Sara recaptures a historical setting with a contemporary sensibility.
Born in May of 1980, Sara earned a Masters Degree from Camberwell College of Art in 2002, and has since lived and worked in London, Hong Kong, New York and Paris. She has exhibited in Hong Kong, New York, Miami, Paris, Tokyo, Seoul and London. Embracing the flexibility of printmaking, Sara has secured high profile commissions and collaborations with Shanghai Tang, Selfridges, Liberty of London, the Pedder Group, the Harilela Hotel Group, Japanese fashion label FurFur, and Coco Ribbon.
This year, Sara has been working on a number of designs for Liberty of London including a series for the 2012 London Olympics.
