Sarah Galloway

 

As an artist Sarah Galloway recognises that much of her work involves communication and collaboration with a range of individuals and professions. In 2005 Sarah founded Sarah Galloway Associates with her partner Alan Morris to enable her to concentrate on the creative and conceptual aspects of her work.  Born in Devon Sarah spent her early years travelling extensively, living in many parts of the United Kingdom in addition to time spent in Malta.

After settling in Cornwall Sarah studied at Falmouth College of Art, with early influences including the St Ives Painters and artists including Patrick Heron and John Piper. Interested in surface pattern and design Sarah went on to study at the Birmingham Institute of Art and Design, where she was awarded a First Class honours degree and a Distinction at Masters level.  It was during her MA that she developed her love of glass. Having undertaken numerous successful commissions, as a highly experienced glass artist Sarah has expertise in all manner of design and fabrication, whilst the innovative use of light is an important and unique aspect of her work. In her spare time Sarah is both a keen gardener and cook and enjoys country walks and rambling. A self-confessed hoarder, Sarah has a passion for collecting unusual antique objects and artworks.

 

 

 

Alan Morris

 

With responsibility for promoting Sarah's work as well as the day to day running of the studio, Alan also helps with the realisation of the artworks, providing both technical and practical support where necessary.  Alan is often able to use his experience as a photographer to help where photographic techniques are integrated into the design of the glass. Having studied photography at Exeter College of Art and the Birmingham Institute of Art and Design, Alan went onto complete a PhD in 'Photographic Archives and Digital Technologies' at the University of Wolverhampton.

In addition to creating his own work and collaborating with Sarah, Alan has taught at a number of institutions including Coventry University, Blackpool and the Fylde College, the University of Gloucestershire and Plymouth College of Art, where he was Course Leader for the MA Entrepreneurship for Creative Practice programme.  A keen cyclist and runner, in 2007 Alan cycled from Lands End to John O'Groats and has gone on to complete a number of sportives around the country, in addition to successfully finishing at the London Marathon. Alongside his responsibilities in the studio, Alan is currently undertaking research and consultancy work relating to creativity and education.
