About Sarah Grace Cheek
To create most of my work I use hand carving and power carving techniques in conjunction with the lathe. Recently I’ve started venturing into the realms of more representational art and exploring relief carvings. My inspirations include bones, rocks, bark, scavenged and salvaged materials and antique textiles. Crafting reimagined adaptations of items reveals observations of myself and my perceived reality. For me, creating is an exercise where mind and body work in unison which culminates in a dance of muscle memory and spontaneity.
