Deputy Editor of the magazine, Sarah is also an artist, printmaker and writer. She runs Frond & Feather, where her inspiration for design work comes from the natural world. Writing about the seasons, nature and simple living, she lives a quiet life where pleasure is found in the little details - those we notice when we slow down and savour what we already have: good times with friends and family, wholesome and tasty things to eat, gentle home comforts. Find her on TwitterInstagram and Pinterest and read her posts for Creative Countryside here.
