Sarah Dixon, born in London and raised in Cyprus and the Middle East, is a socially-engaged conceptual artist using a wide range of platforms and media.

She draws on a very wide range of experience: she has a degree in Biology from UCL, worked as a ethnobotanist in the Ecuadorian Amazon, and has studied art forms from Orthodox icon painting to bronze casting and corporate design. Her work, has been shown at the ICA, Oblong Gallery and on a cyberbus in Moscow, amongst other places. Earlier this year she was shortlisted for the Jerwood Bursary Award. She is currently Artist in Residence at Gloucester Library and is an active member of three women’s artist collectives. She works from her studio in Stroud, Gloucestershire where she lives with her husband and three year old daughter.
