Dr Nigel Laycock, Blackpool Victoria Hospital
I am delighted to provide a reference for Sarah. We worked closely on a re-development project of a women and children’s out-patient department and also a special care baby unit at Blackpool Victoria Hospital. The project has been very successful with positive feedback on a regular basis from patients and staff. We had good communication with Sarah during the planning and the glasswork was completed on time. I have no hesitation in recommending her. The standard of work was excellent.

Alistair Baines, Cassidy and Ashton Architects
The Practice has worked closely with Sarah Galloway on a number of high profile projects during recent years. Of particular note was Sarah’s involvement in our award winning Palatine Library for Blackpool Council in 2007 in which she designed the artwork for a beautiful glass balustrade on a curved feature staircase. The design has received many accolades and stands as a tribute to the quality of design and craftsmanship that Sarah instills in all her work.

Carolyn Primett, Head of Arts, Blackpool Council
Sarah has personally worked with me and members of my team on a number of high profile commissions in Blackpool over the past 5 years. Many of these commissions she has won through a rigorous tendering process. Sarah is very able in working to the different demands of her clients, both in the public and private sector and has experience of working on a range of scales. She is always looking at new ways to extend her skills and her experience in working with glass and different forms of lighting.
I have 20 years experience in the public art field and I know Sarah has a national reputation as a highly creative and experienced professional that delivers exciting work on time and to budget.

Andrew Gibbs, Sunfields Methodist Church
We were in the fortunate position when building our new church of having sufficient funds to commission Sarah Galloway to design and produce a substantial stained glass window, framing the communion table in the sanctuary and significantly enhancing the overall appearance of our building. It is worth emphasising both that the interior view of the work is effective in daylight, particularly in strong sunlight, and also that it is very striking when viewed from outside if the building is lit up after dark. We have had no cause for dissatisfaction with our choice of Sarah in the years since installation.
A good, direct professional relationship was established between Sarah as artist and ourselves as client early on. It persisted throughout the project and we continue to be very pleased with the work that Sarah Galloway has created for us.
