Sara Anstis

Location: London

Sara Anstis was raised on a small island off the Canadian west coast and draws and lives wherever she finds good light. Her images, installations and collaborative projects take shape through an intuitive exploration of memories and desires. In her soft pastel drawings, her unruly ‘primarily female’ figures can be found engaging in scenes of revelry and living tender moments within landscapes built from imagination.
