Our Influential person is...Sarah Hicks
Sarah is a visual and community artist, based in the North West of England. She has been drawing and painting all her life, but her real passion for art began when she studied photography and then art at A-level. Her paintings sell at exhibitions and galleries, but most are privately commissioned and designed specifically for the client.
Sarah has over ten years’ experience of using her creative skills to work with groups of all ages and abilities. She believe that art can be a great healer and a very positive outlet for people with all sorts of disadvantages. As well as running programs with mainstream nurseries, primary and secondary schools, she has also designed and run projects for severely disabled groups, children with extreme behavioural problems, pupil referral units, adults with learning difficulties, residential homes for the elderly and hard to reach families from some of the toughest estates in the north of England.
