For more than ten years Sarah has worked with cultural organisations, design studios and individuals to shape ideas into exceptional projects including books, journals, websites, branding, exhibitions and events.

With experience in all aspects of the editorial process, she can advise at every stage of production – from ideation, commissioning, manuscript editing and briefing, to working with a team of designers, printers, PRs and partner organisations to deliver projects of diverse scales and with their own unique challenges.

Sarah has held editorial positions with The New Inquiry (2011), the Architectural Association (2012–18), the Royal Academy of Arts (2018–19) and the Kramlich Collection (2015–19). Most recently as director of Drawing Matter (March 2019 – June 2020), she oversaw a public programme of books, an online magazine, events and exhibitions.

Additionally, she has taught undergraduate courses at the London College of Communication, hosted roundtables on arts publishing and has presented her own research on postwar visual culture. 

Her freelance clients include the University of the Arts, Visual Editions, Bedford Press, Zak Group, Tate, the British Council, Dogma, OFFICE KGDVS, 6a architects, the New Art Trust, PHASE3, Circa Press, David Chipperfield Architects and Domus.
