Sarah completed a Bachelor of Art Education (Visual Arts) at the College of Fine Arts, University of NSW in 1999. Since then she has worked within the arts industry as an arts educator, curator and artist including various positions at Casula Powerhouse and Wagga Wagga Art Gallery. Currently she is the Director of the Booranga Writers Centre based in the Riverina.

In 2003 and 2004 Sarah curated unsound Australia's only regionally based experimental arts festival and was the recipient of a Gordon Darling 2003 Domestic Travel Grant. Sarah's interest in new media began while still at University and being from a rural background she is struck by the possibilities new media technologies could provide in challenging the urban and somewhat institutionalised paradigm that dominates the creation, presentation and promotion of contemporary art forms in the national arts landscape.

At Hill End Sarah will further develop research into regionally based new media arts practices to develop a proposal for a national initiative. This iniative will aim to provide opportunity for the creation, presentation and recognition of new media arts from regional Australia.
