Sarah has noticed all the “Development Proposal” signs going up everywhere over the past few years. You can barely walk a block without seeing either one of these signs, or something under construction. In the spirit of the Contact 2014 theme “Identity”, she has chosen to look at the changing identity of Toronto as it continues to evolve towards being a “world class city”. As an ongoing project, Sarah will continue to document the changing city.
‘If you love it, you should do it!’, cherished advice given to Sarah by her Uncle Alan when he learned of her love for visual art. Sarah graduated from the 3-year adult visual art program at The Art Centre at Central Technical School in 2010, and also studied at the Haliburton School of the Arts and the Toronto School of Art. Sarah’s submission ‘Ode to Judy’, a tribute to her friend who died from cancer at the age of 51, was part of Photosensitive’s ‘Cancer Connections’ cross-Canada tour and book in 2010, and was featured as part of a 2-page spread in the Toronto Star.
