This 20 year old artist works are inspired by socio-cultural themes that include women’s empowerment, sexuality and racial profiling. This project was born out of her need to question the beauty standards set by society and our obsession with fair skin.
Using embroidery as the medium to express herself, Sarah feels that, “The fact that it has been tagged as ‘women’s work’, with every stitch I make, I hope that it challenges these common perceptions and shows the strength of each piece.”
